I have an Italian greyhound/mini pinscher mix. He loves the dog park and playing with other dogs, but often when we get home I find his back legs got scraped up to the point of bleedinyg. I know that grey hounds tend to have thinner skin and I don't want him to continue to have scab overed legs, but I also don't want to take him from his favorite form of play. Is there any way of wrapping their legs or otherwise protecting their thin skin in the areas most affected by play?
You are correct that Greyhounds have thin skin and can easily suffer a skin tear. Unfortunately I do not have any experience with that issue antenna offer and a concrete advice. I would suggest Consulting with your vet before attempting to wrap those tiny little legs. You might also look into some custom jammies that would cover those legs. I am sorry I'm not of any more help to you but wish you luck in solving the problem. It is up to us to keep these little guys safe and it is not always easy.
