  1. Heart Supplements

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    At what point is it a good idea to start supporting the heart with supplements? I have a 3 almost 4 year old spayed golden that comes from show lines and so far has been in good health. But she was on grain free for the first two years of her life. I worry about her heart. She's never had a...
  2. Understanding the heart Clearance

    Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    Hello all, I am currently researching breeders and I'm getting tripped up understanding the OFA heart clearance. I know I want all four health clearances, Hip, Elbow (done after age 2), up to date eye and a heart clearance. But what's the difference between Echo, Specialist, practitioner and...
  3. Lana Passed Yesterday.

    Golden Retriever Rainbow Bridge
    My last post was in the Senior's forum, and it somehow doesn't feel real to be posting here that my best girl has now gone to the Rainbow Bridge. After reading some of the heartbreaking posts here about young goldens and goldens in the prime of their lives suddenly passing on, I feel very...

  6. 9 Month Old with Possible SAS

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    I'm overly anxious and upset regarding a potential SAS diagnosis for my 9 month old "Gracie." She is my fifth Golden and I sensed something was wrong when she was about 6 months; correct label is "exercise intolerance." Other than that, she is simply an almost perfect sweetheart. I had blood...
  7. Concerned - Grade 3 Murmur in 12 month old

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    Hi, I recently adopted a 12 month old female golden from an owner who could no longer afford to take care of her. Supposedly, she was "healthy," UTD on shots, and was receiving heartworm treatment, and seemed to be in good health. I took her to the vet this morning for her initial exam and thee...
