  1. Does this look normal?

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    Hi Everyone, Our sweet boy had to have emergency surgery a little over a week ago to remove a corn cob from his small intensities. He seems to be on the mend, but today we noticed some dry blood on the seam of his incision. Can anyone tell us if this is a normal part of the healing process...

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Eleanor got spayed on Tuesday and I've had an awful time finding a way to get her to stop licking her incision.

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    Good afternoon, I'm writing because my partner and I learned last week that our Buddy has a pre-frontal meningioma. We are told it is the size of a large grape and I believe the vet mentioned it was near his olfactory lobe. It is operable. He was perfectly fine and normal, at a puppy-like 9...
