CARING FOR YOUR GOLDEN RETRIEVER

Our Care

We all want our Goldens to have a healthy, happy and long life. They aren't just our pets; they're part of our families. They are counting on us to provide for them the best of care. What follows is what we have discovered based on experience and research. We are always learning and growing in our care for dogs and encourage you to do the same. Always follow the health advice of your veterinarian and whenever in doubt as to whether you should ask your vet, please do so immediately.
