How we work
The launch of the Italian Greyhound Active Health Project in 2018 started with a Breed Health Survey to give a current picture of the health of Italian Greyhounds in the UK. It is our intention to complete these surveys at regular intervals and their findings will be available on this website.
The findings allow us to identify key recurring health issues that we are now prioritising for support to the Italian Greyhounds and their owners who are affected, as well as educating breeders to avoid breeding these health issues into future generations where possible.
Our work is ongoing and we plan to run a Breed Health Survey approximately every two years to continue informing our action plan so we can update as existing initiatives as necessary and implement new ones to continue to safeguard the health of our breed.
When you subscribe to the Italian Greyhound Active Health Project and participate in these surveys, you are actively contributing to a continuous improvement in the Italian Greyhound breed health. Without your input, we are left with only anecdotal evidence regarding the health of our breed and no way of knowing how things are changing.
