Nutritional, physiological, biochemical and haematological controls in the racing greyhound

Recueil de Medecine Veterinaire 159(9): 735-746

Nutritional, physiological, biochemical and haematological controls in the racing greyhound

Various blood parameters were measured in samples from 11 greyhounds, of both sexes, aged 1-10 years, and physiological tests were made immediately before and after a 440-metre sprint. Samples of the daily diet used by the different owners were also analysed. The findings are tabulated. The significant changes associated with the sprint effort were in: pulse and respiratory rates, temperature and blood glucose, lactic acid, cholesterol, magnesium, potassium, zinc, haematocrit and cell counts.
