I get what you are saying about the runny eye, as soon as we hydrated the pup her eye began to run and knew there was some sort of problem. Not something the ring judge should see. It continued to run for about 4/5 weeks, until she grew up a little.

Because eye clearances were not up to date and/or posted I didn't make the connection to a pre-existing condition. This is a two fold problem, I take responsibility for not asking for up to date clearances but believe a good breeder should have discussed this with me, she knew there was an issue. It's my distrust with the breeder that is fueling my quest to understand clearances.

This is a condition she will always have but I'm not going to breed so it's history at this point. My concern is for the future health of my girl and will be diligent with yearly exams. Thanks for the honest dialogue, I never meant to question breeders decisions, just trying to learn from my mistakes and be better informed for the future.

I don't know what PU is or what it stands for, enlighten me??

PU = Pigmentary Uveitis. Do a search on the forum (and google) and you will find a wealth of information on it. It is big, bad, scary stuff.

It's my understanding (and I can certainly be wrong) that pigmented cysts are the ones that we see in every dog with PU, and non-pigmented ones can come and go but are not commonly seen in dogs w PU.
Does anyone know if this is accurate?

Great article... let's hope it doesn't come to this! But it was good to know there is no need to panic at this point. Looks like I have plenty of time and can get all her clearances at age 2 and yearly eye exams after that. Thanks for all the info., I was unaware the Golden had so many eye problems... very sad. I knew clearances were important but have to admit I thought it was all about hip & elbow dysplasia, thyroid and heart. Guess I never thought about all the decisions good breeders must go through to facilitate health improvements. Thanks to all of you that are diligent breeders!!
