Max was going to come to us to be rehomed we had organised it with the owner and the trainer but they decided to for some reason give him one last race. At that race he crashed and broke his hock the next morning Shane rang and told us what had happened and at that initially they thought it was sprained. After we had it xrayed we spent the films to the specialist centre and they said it was broken but not badly displaced. That being the case Dr Sam Biddle the new Senior vet at Riverbank Animal Hospital suggested that we splint him and that he would need weekly bandage changes for 6-8 weeks with the result that it would mend in place. Max is a lovely greyhound with a lovely temperament extremely affectionate but as he is a racing greyhound should not be trusted with small fluffy creatures of any sort at this stage. He does sleep in a crate below a cat and takes no notice but if the cat was out running around it maybe a different story altogether. His leg is mending well and Dr Sam is happy with his progress. He has like all our animals been desexed micro-chipped immunised heart worm tested and regularly treated for parasites.
