I first heard of this disease 2 years ago. When my hunter (avatar) was killed by proheart6 back in oct. 2--3, i "met" jean over the net. She had lost 2 dogs to prohearts 54 about a year before i lost hunter (and her 3rd is still on meds because of his problems with ph6).
She had never had experinece with goldens and her boy firned had a goldne who had "dandruff flakes as big as corn flakes." they wre at a loss--and so was their vet. She asked me, i asked her, someome told me about this disease, i e-mailed jean, they took summer to anothr vet and got this diagnosis.
It didn't actually bother her that much, she just had huge "dandruff flakes" falling all the time. She was put on fish oil and vitamins and it did help some. However, they lost her to cancer about 8 months ago, so not sure if she would hae continued to have improvement on this disease or not.
On, the eogs jean lost was a 112 year old "skipper key" and a mutt that looked like a giant cotton ball and the one still on meds, and now 11 years old, wa shepherd and lab mix. Well, after she met her boy firned and got to know summer she fell in love with goldens and theynow have one that is just about 6 months old.
