USAgNet (Oct. 11) – Exertional rhabdomyolysis refers to extreme muscle damage that occurs as a result of short, high-intensity workouts. The most common dogs affected would be retired greyhounds and retired sled dogs. It’s important to never let a greyhound run at racing speeds for more than 30 seconds at a time, according to Dr. Drew Sullivan, director of the Medical District Veterinary Clinic, a Chicago-based practice operated by the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine.
