    Okay, so I’ve been on this forum a lot ever since getting my puppy in october. Ever since I got him, he’s had health issues. It started with on and off giardia, then went to UTIs, then went to food allergies and a uni-testicle. I am STRUGGLING. He is now 10 months old and on Hill’s Prescription...
  3. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi all! I'm looking for a good puppy food that doesn't include poultry since my pup is allergic. I'd like to find one that focuses on fish/potatoes. I've researched many options, but I feel like every single dog food has reviews along the lines of "this dog food killed my dog", so I wanted to...

    Hey friends! My 18 week old golden retriever puppy has been very itchy ever since we first got her. On her 16 week checkup, the vet said that Goldens in general have allergies and that there was no red skin and everything seemed fine. I also live in Arizona and as you well know the summers are...

    Hey everyone! I'm hoping someone can help! While checking Leo for ticks found a hot spot behind his ear :( His hair had matted a little so I cut the matted part out and cleaned it as much as I could. I took him to the vet about a month ago for an ear infection that turned out to be food...

    My puppy that is almost 16 weeks old has been doing this weird nasal thing where she gets choked up in the mornings or when she is sniffing around, eating, or drinking, or laying a certain way. Sometimes it even wakes her up. The vet said she listened to her and doesn't hear anything and her...

    My Golden Emma is having some serious itching problems. We got her a couple of months ago and she had scabs everywhere, skin infection (from scabs and from another dog that was biting her at her old home....), and double ear infections. We treated that all and she seemed to be doing a lot...

    Hello everyone, Question for my pup, Henry. He is almost 4 years old and always had digestive issues. He suffers from a lot of allergies and has always had stomach issues. He's the rant of the litter, and I think that's where the issues come from (but maybe not!) I was wondering if you could...

    My golden is 2.5yrs and a "Field Retriever" (so I was told when I rescued her). After being groomed it only takes a week or so before her fur is oily again and she scratches like CRAZY. Her skin is usually dry (not oily) *They use non scented all natural products due to the scratching. She is...

    hi all, I got my first golden, Olive, 7 weeks ago. She has been wonderful addition to our family. However, at her first vet visit she was diagnosed with pyoderma. I did the bath medication for weeks and now she has a larger skin infection spot. My biggest question is this likely to be a...

    Today Duke had his environmental allergy test and he is allergic to quite a few things...mostly grass, dust, and some tree bark (2 or greater means considered allergic).

    Hi All, my 9 month old Golden is finally on the recovering end of a 2 month battle with food allergies. We finally determined he is allergic to some grains and any amount of chicken. We have him on duck/potato grain-free food right now which has not bothered him for the last 6 weeks. However...
