We list the Vets and Animal Hospitals in the next section as a service to our members and our valued Vets.  These Vets provide services to GREAT, usually at a discount.  They do not pay to have their names listed here, but rather we list them because we believe that they deserve to be recognized for their support of our work with Greys.  Many of these Vets have Greyhounds themselves.  We know everyone has a choice of Vet Services.  If you use another Vet who knows how to treat Greyhounds, please let us know.
