This year we are encouraging all Greyhound owners to participate in our health survey. The purpose of our survey is to find out the strengths and weaknesses of today's Greyhounds. We hope to spot any potential issues for the future to keep our dogs as healthy as possible. Closing date 30th September 2021.

This survey is anonymous and we would value your participation.


"Further to our earlier post, I am pleased to announce that the online survey for the comparative study of Osteosarcoma in racing and pedigree greyhounds is now live.
This survey is designed for those who have owned greyhounds who have died in the past 20 years. You can complete a separate survey for each individual greyhound you have owned. It should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete for each dog. You do not have to do all the surveys in one sitting.
Although this study is primarily based on the UK population of greyhounds, we would be grateful for responses from all over the world and there will be questions in the survey to identify where your greyhound was born and lived. This can potentially recognise any locations or specific breeding lines that may have problems or need further research.
For more information on this study, please contact Elizabeth Pratt (, Prof Mark Dunning (, or the breed health coordinator Clare Boggia (
Thank you for your time and cooperation with this study, I am very grateful for all your responses. "
Here is the link to the survey too. When clicked it should take you directly to the survey:
Survey closes 15 September 2021.
