Health of Your Italian Greyhound

Some of the potential health problems that you should be aware of in dealing with Italian Greyhounds are: progressive retinal atrophy (PRA), luxated patella's (slipping knee caps), thyroid abnormalities, seizures and color mutant alopecia (this is hair loss found in some blue and fawn dogs). When purchasing an IG you should ask whether there have been screening tests done for these conditions in your puppy's parents. This can save you heartache in the future.
