On August 24, 2014 SEGA held a Greyhound first aid seminar. SEGA’s own Dr. Toby Carmichael served as the speaker. The seminar was a great opportunity for participants to get some sound advice about basic first aid for Greyhounds as well as when you need to see a vet or go to an emergency clinic. While some topics at the seminar were Greyhound specific, many of the topics apply to all sighthound breeds and other breeds as well.
The seminar was filmed and SEGA is pleased to offer DVD’s of the seminar for sale. In addition to the DVD, you will receive a link to the supporting materials distributed at the seminar.
