How Can I Stop My Greyhound Corns Re-Occurring? What Should I Do?
Unfortunately, there is not currently a cure for corns. Occasionally when corns are removed, they will not return, however, they very often do, no matter what method is used, including surgery and amputation. Management is the key.
Corns are very common among greyhounds and while there is no definitive cure, there are a variety of treatment options, some more successful than others. There seem to be no logical reason for corns and why some treatments work for some dogs and not others. You will need to be patient and persistent with the treatments.
- Purchasing a pair of greyhound boots which will greatly increase the chance of preventing corns reoccurring. Hunnyboots are the best brand on the market, as they have a slim and long shape which means the boots don’t fall off. See Hunnyboots here: https://zoomadog.co.uk/products/hunnyboots
- Make sure your dog has a deep soft bed and potentially matting around the house for extra comfort
Following having a corn hulled the application of an anti-viral cream to the corn bed has been found to result in either smaller or no returning corns. While often bothersome for both the greyhound and their owner, with good management a greyhound can live a long and full life with corns.
