Dr. Linda Blythe received her DVM in 1974 and PhD in 1978 from UCDavis and was recruited to the newly funded College of Veterinary Medicine at Oregon State University. She taught veterinary neurology, toxicology, and sports medicine for 39 years to the veterinary students, receiving a number of awards for her teaching. Dr. Blythe chose to focus on racing greyhounds and found what was most needed was a book on their care. For this, she teamed up with Dr. Morrie Craig and Drs. Gannon and Fegan of Australia to produce “Care of the Racing Greyhound” in 2007. This endeavor was supported by American Greyhound Council and Oregon Racing Commission. Dr. Blythe along with her colleagues have been inducted into the Greyhound Hall of Fame. She is founding diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation and active in promoting rehabilitation for neurological cases, injured athletes, and geriatric dogs, has publishing over 150 scientific articles.
