HEALTH-GREYHOUNDS ARE DIFFERENT: Blood Chemestry
Greyhound Blood Count and Profile
The veterinarian’s answer that their blood chemistry is different is correct but oversimplified. You would be amazed at how different their blood cell counts and blood biochemistry really is -- and not just the red and white blood cell count! If your vet sends the blood work out for testing at a national laboratory like IDEXX or Antech the report they get back will indicate some of the range differences for greyhounds, but not all. If they do in-house testing their scale probably won’t be adjusted for greyhounds. Instead of us listing the many differences in greyhound blood, we have linked to two very reliable articles that list all of the differences.
