We've discussed the risks of soft tissue injuries from speed related accidents in other posts ("How Healthy is the Whippet Breed"). We've also outlined the importance of making sure you have the correct diagnosis from your vet. Not to insult their clinical expertise, but sometimes the exact source of the problem is not always clear even in the most competent of hands and requires a repeat assessment to arrive at the correct diagnosis. Additionally, we've shared the value of looping your Breeder in when these sort of things happen. Remember, your Breeder will always be your first and best advocate aside from you for your dog!
