  1. Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    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...

    Hello everyone! This is my first post and first golden puppy, so I wanted to try and get some input from all of you more experienced owners :) Finn is 11 months old and has been having some skin issues recently. It started as some mild dandruff in August and has since become more severe off...

    Hi everyone! I have very limited experience with dogs (especially Goldens) and have been scouring these forums for weeks, trying every tidbit of info and nothing seems to be working. Ultimately, I know I need to take my GR into the vet for evaluation, but I have less than no money. I bought my...

    Hi everyone! (or, anyone reading this - hopefully someone!) - I am looking for some alternative advice on how I can treat my dog's ear irritation; I have a happy, healthy, energetic 6 month old female Golden who is totally perfect, except for one concern - her ears are bugging her. She seems...

    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 Guys, I have been transitioning Izzy from Royal Canin (too many poops/itchy) to Fromm (pink bag) for the last 1.5 weeks. I've been mixing in probiotics and pumpkin in with the food and it hasn't been going too bad. 2 nights of diarrhea at the beginning, and now a bit of blood in soft poop...
  7. Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi all, I was wondering what you think about my Finley (4 months old) itching several times a day. It's not terrible, but enough to make me think something's bugging him. Every morning when we wake up to go outside he stops at the top of the stairs to itch, and then he'll itch anywhere from...

    At first it was kind of cute, but this morning he jumped on the bed and stuck his butt in my face! He's very persistent about this too; should I be worried that he's having an allergic reaction or something more serious? Is this normal Goldie behavior? My other GR, Frodo, never does this...

    Hi All, I have come to this site numerous times to help out with any questions that I have had while my golden, Oakley, has been growing up! Everyone seems to have really helpful information, so I am seeking some opinions on our current situation. Oakley is currently 14 months and within the...

    Pup went in for annual exam. Turns out the dirty ears are yeasty (even though 2 vets in the past said it was fine). Vet thinks she has a food allergy and wants me to switch to a new food with totally new ingredients. I only want to try foods made/sourced in the USA... any suggestions? We're...
