Greyhounds

K9DOGMAN IS NOT CURRENTLY TAKING ON ANY NEW GREYHOUND CLIENTS

In the past, Greyhound Trainers/Owners who have used John and had proven improvement in winning times, only attributable to John’s treatments, have told other people not to use him and that he is not good at what he does. Obviously these trainers maintained the upper hand with no opponents in the field being clients of John’s and their winning times speak for themselves.

While this may be a clever competitive way to maintain sole use of someone capable of improving racing times by many lengths, in the past it proved detrimental to John’s business and reputation with it filtering back to the pet industry, causing not only a loss of business but the loss of the lives of many loved pets which would not have happened if their owners had not been deterred from making an appointment with John resulting from the bad sportsmanship of greedy trainers within the Greyhound Racing Industry.

This is inconsiderate and will not be tolerated.

All Greyhound owners should check their dogs after each run and be able to find muscle tears and soreness but shoulders and sciatic nerve should be left to the professionals.

Problems associated with shoulders:

  • Running off or easing off in the bends
  • Not being able to get down in the boxes and therefore missing the start
  • Greyhounds that continuously run with misaligned shoulders will eventually drop the left pin muscle
  • Pull up with sore wrists
  • Not extending out in front
  • Most metacarpal and wrist problems come from the shoulders

Problems associated with the sciatic nerve:

  • Missing the start
  • Crabbing
  • Cramping across the saddle or wither
  • Lack of drive
  • Referral pain causing muscle soreness down the stifle, hamstring and as far down as the calf muscles

Greyhounds can drop back muscles, tear hip supports and triangle muscles due to bad referral pain from a pinched sciatic nerve which causes chronic muscle spasms.

Many greyhounds are fighters and hard to handle due to soreness caused through pinched nerves. Laser and Ultrasonic work will not remove muscle soreness due to referral pains caused through nerve problems – chiropractic treatments are all that will work to solve these problems and better your racing days!
