. . . to Whippet Health, a site where you will find information about many aspects of whippet care and whippet health.
This site is intended to help all whippet owners from a family trying to find their very first puppy to established breeders who may have come across a health problem for which they need more information.
The health problems in these pages are by no means SPECIFIC to whippets and the information may be useful to owners of other breeds.
Whippets are generally a healthy breed, but like all other breeds of pedigree dogs they can contract illnesses and conditions, some rare and some more common. The information you will find in these pages is here to help you if you are so unlucky as to have a whippet suffering an illness. Maybe your vet is unable to diagnose easily because he or she sees only a few whippets and hasn't come across a similar case before, or maybe believes that a whippet can't get that particular condition. So this information is also here to help you get the correct diagnosis as quickly as possible.
There is a page which lists places and people to go to for support if you are worried about your whippet's health.
The information on this site is for educational purposes only and NOT to be considered a substitute for professional veterinary care.
