All dog breeds have some minor health problems, and French Bulldogs are no exception. They are prone to joint diseases, spinal disorders, heart defects, and eye problems. Pregnancies in French Bulldogs often end with Cesarean sections because the pups' heads can
Pigmentary Uveitis is an eye disease that mostly affects Golden Retrievers. Pigmentary Uveitis is also known as Golden Retriever Uveitis, cystic glaucoma, or the shortened name of PU. PU is thought to have originated from the Northeastern part of the United States, and was mostly in Golden Retrievers. PU also affects crossbred dogs with Golden’s such as Goldendoodles. Although it is present in crossbreds, the disease still mainly affects Golden Retrievers. This is a genetic disease that affects the eye, and the eye only. “Uveitis is an inflammation of the uveal tract, which includes the iris” (Golden Retriever Uveitis). PU is usually diagnosed around the age of 8.6 years. Which means if they were breeding dogs, they would have already passed it on to their offspring. This genetic disease could spread very quickly, considering the signs are not visible until after they have had offspring. Since breeding programs outside of the United States have different certification standards, researchers do not know if PU has spread to other countries at this time.
Did you know Goldendoodles are a relatively new dog breed? They first appeared in North America and Australia in the 1990s after breeders realized a larger poodle hybrid would appeal to people who wanted a bigger hypoallergenic dog.
A Golden Doodle is a cross between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle. They have a personality that is smart, friendly, and tender. Golden doodle ranges from 15 to 100 pounds in
And you shouldnt have any worries about them being near friends and family . The “ATTA” proved that aggression or violent towards humans or other dogs is not in the blood of a pitbull but it is taught to the dog as a pup.” According to the American Temperament Test Society, in 2012, 86.8% of American Pit Bull Terriers passed society tests that measure stability, aggressiveness, friendliness, and protectiveness. 85.2% of golden retrievers and 80.1% of collies passed these tests” showing that almost everydog in the world has almost the same bite and attitude . the studies on dog bites has found that no breed is more dangerous than another. studies show the most popular breeds at any given time can to top other dogs because of how big and how many people own these types of
As anyone who has seen a televised dog show can attest, some dogs are deformed in disturbing ways. One might look at the “excessively wrinkled skin of the Chinese Shar-Pei,” the “the flat face of a bulldog,” or the “low-slung eyelids of a Bloodhound” (PBS), and think, “That can not be healthy.” The fact of the matter is that these deformities are far from healthy. As the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) points out, the Shar-Pei’s skin (due to it’s “excessively wrinkled” nature) is prone to skin infections, the Bloodhound’s droopy eyes are practically magnets for eye infection, and the Bulldog’s face is so squished that it can never breathe correctly. While these deformities may be more obvious, overly large or small pedigree dogs have their own slew of health problems (Rooney and Sargan). As Rooney and Sargan disclose, very small dogs (known as toy breeds) often have dislocated kneecaps, heart problems, and trouble staying warm. Big dogs, such as Great Danes, can suffer from heat prostration and orthopedic issues (Rooney and Sargan). According to Rooney and Sargan, almost every purebred breed of dog is more likely to have at least one genetic disease compared to mixed breeds. However, physical problems are not the only thing purebred dogs have to face: behavioral problems are also more prevalent in certain breeds (Rooney and Sargan). Rooney and Sargan reveal that
The School of Veterinary Medicine of the University of California, Davis studied the effects of neutering on Golden and Labrador retrievers. They found that male Golden Retrievers with joint disorders is five percent in intact dogs and up to twenty-seven percent occurred in neutered dogs. Male Golden Retrievers with cancer is eleven percent in intact dogs and up to seventeen percent in neutered dogs. Female Golden Retrievers with joint disorders is five percent intact and twenty percent neutered. Female Golden Retrievers with cancer is three percent intact and fourteen percent neutered. Male Labrador Retrievers with joint disorders is five percent intact and twelve and one-half percent neutered. Male Labrador Retrievers with cancer is four
Golden Retrievers are known for their many different shades of gold. Today they are used as family dogs or show dogs. They are easy to handle, very tolerant and does not require very much from the owner(s), other than requlare exercise, food and verterinary checl ups.

Female dogs usally are up to the height of 21-23inches and their weight is up to 56-65lbs. Golden retrievers also live up to 10-12 years.
Lymphoma is a type of cancer that originates in the lymph nodes. The most common type of lymphoma in golden retrievers is Multicentric Lymphoma. Multicentric Lymphoma is a type of lymphoma that involves all the peripheral lymph nodes. You can identify these lymph nodes by X-rays, ultrasounds, biopsies, etc. Before treatment for this cancer can begin, you must first make sure the health and well-being of the patient and client are okay; letting the client know what measures will be taken to attack the cancer. Once the client has willingly agreed to the treatment, knowing all possible complications and symptoms, you may proceed with the physical examination.
As sweet and wonderful as Great Danes are, like all breeds, they have their drawbacks. Their commonly short life span is first on the list. A high average is probably seven to eight years, although there are certainly exceptions to this. Many have been known to live from nine to twelve years. This is a question to ask when interviewing a breeder for a puppy. Obviously, their early deaths are due to some causes. Unfortunately, more than their share of health problems are found in this breed. Not all problems listed below are life-threatening, but seem to occur more often in Great Danes. Thyroid imbalance, cataracts and Von Willebrand's disease are some health issues that breeders are now also screening for. Ask the breeder which problems they
The eye plays an essential role in the human body. Being able to see and perceive objects by an individual lies fairly on the judgment of the eyes. Cataracts are painless and gradual whereas glaucoma can either be slow and subtle or quick and painful. A cataract is highly likely to result in cloudiness in the eye since light is prevented from entering it correctly (Tzu et al., 2015). According to Jensen (2015), glaucoma leads to a buildup of pressure in the eye, the resultant effect is usually a damaged optic nerve, and has the potential of causing permanent blindness. For a patient battling with diabetes mellitus, they are highly likely to develop diabetic retinopathy. This condition is usually shown by ocular hemorrhages, increased vascular
Dog owners should be aware of a potentially fatal condition called gastric dilation-volvulus (GDV). This condition has several causes. Dog owners must be able to recognize the signs. Immediate treatment is essential.
This eye disease is usually diagnosed in the beginning stages of diabetes. Though it can happen at an age, it is more common in the elderly. It is caused by high blood sugar levels, which destroy the blood vessels that are in the retina. If it is left untreated, it can lead to blindness.
Golden Retrievers and Labradors are good dogs and can a very good family pet, but they differ in terms of traits, maintenance and cost, also Temperament.
