Golden Retrievers are prone to hip or elbow dysplasia, and congenital eye defects, such as cataracts. It is important to see that both parents are certified free of these problems (OFA and CERF certification). Parents should also be free of heart problems, and Von Willenbrand disease (a clotting/bleeding disorder). They can also be prone to skin Allergies.
