More about Whippet Care

Whippets are a very healthy, low maintenance dog breed and your visit to the vet will probably be only for routine vaccinations and the occasional skin tear or running injury.

We listed below some links to pages about common problems and routine care that will keep your whippet in top condition.


Home Remedies

Anesthesia Sensitivity

Because of their little amount of body fat sighthounds and whippets are especially sensitive to anesthesia methods that are perfectly safe for other dogs.

The drugs used successfully on other breeds can be harmful or even fatal for your whippet.

If you are not sure if your vet is aware of this sighthound peculiarity, I strongly recommend that you print this page and give it to your doctor.

I know, it may seem pedantic and you don’t want to spoil the relationship with your trusted vet but this is a very important issue, your pet life is on the line and is better be safe and pedantic than sorry.
