The Greyhound requires moderate grooming maintenance, including brushing their teeth daily if possible. With adequate exercise, their rapidly growing nails should stay worn down, but they need to be inspected regularly as the overgrown nails can cause discomfort. A weekly brushing, as well as a recurring bath, is all that is needed to keep their short coat in good condition. All dogs require regular dental care, including at-home teeth brushing and professional dental cleanings, and Greyhound is no exception. Maintaining good dental hygiene is important for their overall long-term health.
As with any dog, it’s important to monitor the amount of food and treats that you give your Greyhound, especially since some dogs may be prone to gaining weight as they age. Your veterinarian is always a good source to help provide you with appropriate nutrition and feeding guidelines.
