  1. My 14 week puppy ate underwear

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    My female golden retriever who weighs about 12-13 pounds just ate a pair of women’s underwear (a thong). It’s late at night.. what should I do? She’s pretty small and I’m not even sure how she was able to swallow. Does anyone have experience with this? Any advice? Thank you in advance
  2. Pica or boredom?

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    We've been having an issue here with our (almost) 7 month old puppy Milo. Well, lots of issues...he's been a real handful. Many of them stem from this one main problem being that he eats EVERYTHING. Well, not everything, but most things that he should really not be eating. He's pooped out a...
  3. 10-month F puppy lost appetite

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Trudy isn't eating much, but otherwise seems completely fine. No discernible change in energy, mood, etc. I feed her Wellness brand's Complete Health Large Breed Puppy food. Feeding Guidelines suggest 7 cups daily for her current age (10 months) and size (75 - 80 lbs - she's a giant, even...
  4. My Golden Won't Eat

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Our 2 year old Golden Retriever Female, Loni, has had trouble eating her whole life. We have taken her into the vet on multiple occasions and our vet just tells us that she may have an allergy. She tells us to buy really expensive food from her, and we can't afford to buy $80 food that barely...
  5. 8 month old refusing kibble

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I first got Keller only about a month ago. He was on some pedigree puppy food formulation before I got him, with grains as its first ingredient, and had really runny stools. We started the transition after his first 3 days with us. He didn't eat much his first week, but I understand that could...
  6. Eating Rug? Do we need to visit the vet?! =(

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    My 6 month old pup apparently likes to chew on (and ingest) pieces of the area rug (see picture). He's done this a few times before but we've never had any issues in terms of his getting sick. I'm just worried because this time he's eaten more than he's done in the past! Has anyone had this...

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    My Deanie boy is almost 5 months old and pretty much the best dog I've ever had, except for his love of tennis ball fuzz. I recently bought him a big ball from the pet store and he proceeded to eat the fuzz off of it, I got most of it away from him but he did swallow some. Can eating the fuzz...

  11. Our puppy's first weekend

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    We just brought home our new puppy, Titan, on Friday. Such an exciting time! Here are some of our experiences from the past 3 days. Hopefully most of these are normal for an 8-week old, but we are open to any suggestions or tips. Just after 3 days, we are so proud of Titan, what he's learned...
  12. Rubbing his nose before eating? Bizarre!

    Golden Retriever Behavioral Problems & Issues
    Hi there! My almost-3-year-old "pup", Beamer, has his share of quirks. He goes in phases with his food, where at times he'll gobble it down and even wait to be fed, others it seems he has no interest in eating. During the times it seems he has no interest, he does this weird thing after we...
  13. Ongoing issues...

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    I have discussed these two things before but they are not getting better. I am more concerned with the walking habits versus the food. I know she will eat if she wants it bad enough.... 1. She is weird about her food. I can't figure out what the problem is. I thought it might be her bowl so we...
  14. sticks...?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    So at 8 months old Koda has not gotten over her fixation with eating EVERYTHING! I don't care if she gets a leaf or some grass or harmless things but the sticks worry me? She eats them, not just chews on them and my assumption is that is bad for them. She has gotten good at drop it if she is on...

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello everyone :) I will be bringing my puppy home in May (super excited!!) and on the recommendation of the breeder, we will be continuing the dog food that they have fed him until he leaves with us. They recommend an adult formula food for more even growth instead of a puppy formula. I cant...
  16. conduct a sweep of their mouth

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Hi all - we had a close call a few nights ago and I felt it note worthy to mention just in case you have silly goldens like my girls. We've talked about chewing etc. so I wont go into that. My girls have this fascination with what ever they can get in their mouth when they go outside for a...
  17. • Loss of Appetite?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello All, I'm posting to ask if it's normal for pups to sometimes "lose" their appetite. For the first couple months that we had Max, he pretty much inhaled his food at every meal. Not a kibble left in the dish. He was always very anxious to be fed and came running the second he heard the...
