  1. Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    Last night, I found a marble sized hard lump on my boy's back left leg. It is very firm and appeared very suddenly as I regularly pet him and check for anything out of the ordinary. He is only 2 years old. He did get 3 vaccines last Thursday, today is the following Tuesday. I believe it was...

    Hi all We are first time Goldie owners so looking for some advice. We have a 9 month old lively boy called Wilson. He started limping on his left hind leg a few weeks ago.

    Hi everyone! I have a golden retriever named Sunny and he is 8 months old. I just bought him a new 30ft leash to play fetch in parks and work on recall. I usually teach him heel and to focus while on the walks and I will give him one piece of kibble or one very small piece of chicken sausage...

    Hi everyone! My girl just turned 20 months and I've noticed she's not as active as she was a few months ago and I was wondering if this is normal. Here's the thing - 3 months ago she had knee surgery due to an injury. Everything went as expected, the surgery was a success and her vet said she is...

    Just putting this on everyone’s radar in case it’s of interest. There is a recently released book on dog health called The Forever Dog. I think it’s #2 on the NYT Best Sellers List and is focused on things we can do to improve our dogs’ health and increase our dogs’ life span. This morning I...

  15. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Full disclaimer, I have health anxiety and often get paranoid. So I am not sure if I am looking too much into things or if this is normal behaviour for a puppy. I am also a bit paranoid because my parents' lab (who I helped raise until I moved out when he was 1 year old) has elbow dysplasia and...

    My male Golden is almost 2 years old. This is one of his nipples. The front half of his nipples are flat while the back half look like what I would expect them to look like.

    Hi everyone. My handsome golden, Sammy, is the love of my life. He is now 12 years old and still going strong (knock on wood). Today, I noticed he has this large boil or maybe a wart on his lower lip. Please tell me if anyone has seen this before and or knows what it is. I will eventually take...

    Hey everyone - does anyone have any insight into the best probiotics for dogs? My breeder recommends ProBios but I have seen some reviews complaining about the ingredients. I'm not a science/health wiz so I figured some people on here would know or have some recommendations. Thank you!
