The GRCC with Greyhound-Data has conducted its first Workshop 1 and 2 Basic Injury Detection for greyhound owners in Mainland China. The injury detection workshops are "hands on" and teach a precise technique of examining any dog for muscle injuries.
The following subjects were covered: Suitable Bedding, Nails, Acidosis, Cramping and Corns.
Examination of the: Shoulders, Accessory Carpal, Main Flexor Tendon, Metacarpals, Toes, Wrists, Hip Muscles, Hip Support, Gracilis, Calf, Achilles Tendon, Hock and Groin.
During the workshop which was held over two days we also spoke about feeding, vitamins and exercise. These subjects will be covered in full on future workshops.
The workshops were ran by our Chairman Shan Wei, Dr. Tong Jingbin Welfare Officer and myself and will be ongoing to improve the knowledge and understanding of caring for a greyhound.
Thank you to all on our workshops and well done on passing the first two workshops. A special thank you to the vets who participated and shared their knowledge.
