Gettysburg, PA – Golden Retrievers are hailed by dog lovers as the ultimate family pet! They blend in easily with any family as they love children. They enjoy dog exercises, cuddling on the couch, and are extremely loyal to their family. They’re also easy to train, making caring for them a breeze. The founder of My Golden Retriever is a fur parent who understands how to perfectly care for one and graciously shares informative resources with other fur parents. For instance, they answer questions like, are Golden Retrievers good at jumping? How to find Golden Retriever Breeders, How to help a Golden Retriever with Diarrhea and many more. The information is thoroughly researched and is mostly just like what a vet would share with his clients.
The founder had this to say, “I, myself, am the proud mama of a beautiful Golden Retriever named Jenny. She’s the best dog ever! (minus the hair she leaves behind all over our house).”
A key thing that a new parent of a Golden Retriever needs to understand is how much food to give it. Generally, puppies should be fed more frequently than grown dogs. The puppy should be fed the mother’s milk exclusively during the first few weeks after birth (between 6-8). But if the mother cannot, it can be fed with special formula milk. This cushions the puppy from illnesses and helps it develop a strong immune system. Like a human baby, a pup should also be weaned, but after six weeks, by gradually introducing solid food, and it should be fed 3 to 4 times per day. This ensures that the digestive system slowly acclimates to solid foods and averts any digestive issues. As the pup grows, it should be fed at least three times per day. Another thing in feeding is dogs enjoy eating wet foods more than dry foods. The pup’s weight should follow a normal curve. A healthy weight eliminates cancer, eye problems, and cardiac problems. However, lack of weight gain even after sticking to its meal schedule would warrant a visit to the vet to rule out any serious condition.
It’s heart-breaking to watch a Golden Retriever weighed down by diarrhea. However, this is a common health issue that affects all dog breeds. Luckily, the diarrhea is not life-threatening and can be treated comfortably from home. Common symptoms to help identify diarrhea include loss of appetite, loose stool, lack of energy, vomiting, and weight loss. Home remedies such as feeding it pumpkins, cooked chicken, and boiled rice can help with the condition. The parent should also ensure the dog stays hydrated by giving it plenty of clean water. If no improvements are noted, that should warrant a visit to the vet for further care.
