A German perspective on Breed Health Strategies for Greyhounds
I am grateful to Barbara Thiel for sharing her latest article on the application of Breed Health Strategies in the Greyhound breed in Germany. Barbara was one of the delegates I met at the IPFD’s 3rd International Dog Health Workshop in April this year. She has taken many of the ideas we discussed in the Breed Specific Strategies working group and discussed how they could be applied in her breed, Greyhounds, in Germany.
I think it’s a great example of how some of the basic principles can be tailored to reflect different international contexts. The approach required in Germany will inevitably be different to that in the UK and what might work for us in Dachshunds, may not work for Greyhounds.
Well worth a read – here. (Translated from German)
