Advice following Kennel Audits

Recent kennel audits have revealed some LPs have been administering medicines off label. This means that they have been using medicines in a form that is not officially approved for use in dogs.

It is important that prior to any off label use of medicines that you contact your vet to discuss the administration of these products and follow their instructions. 

In addition, it is important that LPs are prepared for an emergency. The following checklist has been put together to assist you with looking after your greyhounds in the event of an emergency.
