Injury and Retirement Data

Our injury rates are the lowest independently verified figures in the world and we are determined to decrease these still further through our Greyhound Commitment.

These figures have been audited and verified by our own experts and by external, independent auditors.

Independent Veterinary Surgeons are present at all GBGB licensed tracks to check the health and wellbeing of every greyhound both before and after racing, and to provide emergency care in the event that any dog needs it. 

For more information about injuries in greyhound racing, see our Veterinary Director’s blog here.
