The Fast Facts

What do these dogs eat?

Despite their large size, Greyhounds are not expensive to feed. Most Greyhounds in race training are fed kibble plus up to 0.5kg fresh meat per day. Once retired, a good quality dry commercial food (eg. our dogs in foster care are fed a premium dried dog food) supplemented with occasional tablescraps is all that is required. As with all large or giant breeds, meals should be fed twice daily and all exercise or excitement avoided around mealtimes to prevent 'bloat'. Retired racers will generally put on some weight after adoption, but should not be allowed to become overweight.
