  1. Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    Hello, I recently just joined. I rescued my golden about 10 years ago. They had her listed as a year old. She is a great dog but a medical nightmare. She had a nodular melanoma, that I found on her back foot, a couple weeks after adopting her. It was removed and that has not reoccurred. She is...

This last year his blood work showed some liver disease (new prescription food and supplements have...

    Hi, I have an 8 year male golden retriever called T.J. He eats a normal senior diet to the required amount for his ideal weight (32 kg), he is prone to being overweight but I think that that is probably just because he doesn't get enough exercise. He has mild arthritis and has ruptured his...

He's a large golden weighing in at 85 lbs and we strictly monitor his diet, but with his reduced activity levels managing his weight has been a family commitment.

    I posted here almost 2 years ago when our beautiful Lana had seizures due to Trifexis. She has certainly rallied since then, but about a year ago at the age of 13 she was diagnosed with LP. We have chosen to keep her comfortable rather than put her through surgery. She is now 14 years and 8...
