    Our golden retriever, Oscar, just celebrated his 11th birthday. Two years ago he seemed like a old man, easily fatigued and occasionally confused and spaced out.

  4. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    So our pup Clifford will be 1 at the end of Feb. He is constantly nibbling at his feet, pulling out his leg hair and tail hair, and recently, pushing his nose into the floor quite often. I’ve noticed his body hair seems to be shedding much too. We changed his food a few months ago from...

    Greetings everyone! My six year old golden, Zeus, gets itchy in spring/summer. Some itchiness is fine, but somedays it is too much. He has been on Apoquel last few years. I have been able to cut back to half a tab, and not everyday. If it is bad, I do give him a whole tab. I really wish I did...

  10. 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...

  17. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    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...
