Canine Cancer Can Be Beaten

There are four words that no dog owner ever wants to hear – “Your dog has cancer.” Until recently, cancer treatment options were limited, but ongoing research has resulted in the development of new treatment options and medication regimens.

The Greyhound Supporters of the National Capital Region (GSNCR) is proud to invite you to participate in a unique learning event with Dr. Guillermo Couto, DVM Diplomate ACVIM, and professor at the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences of the Ohio State University (OSU).

This event offers all dog owners, the opportunity to hear Dr. Couto speak about canine cancer in dogs, current cancer-related research projects, ongoing canine cancer treatments at the University of Ohio and much more. Included in Dr. Couto’s talk will be information about OSU’s Greyhound Health and Wellness Program – its purpose and benefits, and how everyone with retired racing greyhounds can get involved.

Not only is Dr. Couto one of the world’s leading veterinary experts in hematology and oncology, he is a greyhound enthusiast. Dr. Couto became involved in Greyhound Rescue over 15 years ago when he adopted his first greyhound. Since then, Dr. Couto has been working with, and volunteering his time and services to greyhound (galgos) rescue groups in Spain. Dr. Couto visits Spain at least once a year, where he assists local Galgos rescue groups and provides veterinary services to the many galgos in need.

The Greyhound Supporters would like to extend the invitation to all dog owners and dog lovers to attend this learning opportunity of a lifetime. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, and please feel free to share this information with anyone whom you think might be interested in attending. This event is open to everyone who would like to attend.

The Greyhound Supporters of the NCR (GSNCR) is a not-for-profit group dedicated to the health and welfare of racing greyhounds. The GSNCR is based in Ottawa (Canada), and is not linked to any particular adoption group or greyhound-related entity. The objective of the GSNCR is to raise funds for and/or participate in greyhound-related causes established to improve the health and physical well being of the retired racing greyhound globally. The GSNCR works to raise public awareness of retired racing greyhounds, and the status of racing greyhounds all around the world.

We are really looking forward to this event. Although we have been at other events where Dr Couto has been speaking, we were not able to attend due to other commitments. We will finally get to meet him and hear him speak about this terrible disease and his research which will ultimately benefit all dogs and people. I would encourage you to come if you are able. It would be well worth it.

See you there…
