Mina: Greyhound with Spondylosis

This is Mina. Just two years ago Carolyn thought that Mina wouldn't make it, because Mina is suffering from serious health problems. Mina is an ex-racing Greyhound and as a result of her career and genetics she is suffering from spondylosis and other joint related problems.

In addition to this Mina was suffering from other problems such as scurfy skin and runny stools. Mina's homeopathic vet recommended Carolyn to start giving Mina Bionic Biotic. After giving Mina Bionic Biotic her stools became normal again and her scurfy skin keeps getting better and better. To learn more about how Bionic Biotic helped Mina click here.

So sorry to hear that Mina is suffering with health issues.
It is not surprising, however, that there are a lot of greyhounds who suffer drom health issues. The racing industry views these dogs as short-term investments and discards them like so much trash after their 'careers' are over, health issues and all.

Greyhound racing is cruel and inhumane. Greyhounds endure lives of nearly constant confinement, kept in cages barely large enough for them to stand up or turn around. While racing, many dogs suffer and die from injuries including broken legs, paralysis, and cardiac arrest. And many greyhounds are euthanized every year, as the number retired from racing exceeds the number of adoptive homes.

At racetracks across the country, greyhounds endure lives of confinement. According to industry statements, greyhounds are generally confined in their cages for approximately 20 hours per day. They live inside warehouse-style kennels in stacked cages that are barely large enough to stand up or turn around. Generally, shredded paper or carpet remnants are used as bedding.

An undercover video recently released by GREY2K USA shows the conditions in which these gentle dogs are forced to live: http://www.grey2kusa.org/azVideo.html

Dogs play an important role in our lives and deserve to be protected from industries and individuals that do them harm.
