Hi,

I'm sorry to hear that your dog is having this issue. You may want to have your vet check into bleeding disorders such as VWD or anemia. The breed can be prone to VWD, however since it's typically known for his presence in GSD's, it's often overlooked. You can read more here http://www.digitaldog.com/dog_breed/Italian+Greyhound and here http://www.petplace.com/dogs/von-willebrand-s-disease-vwd/page1.aspx I hope he's dong better soon and if you need any other information, let me know. -Robyn
