interesting (?) observation about ichthyosis affected Goldens
Ichthyosis seems to be a fairly common topic on the Golden Retriever Forum lately as people and veterinarians are learning what it is.
One thing that I noticed is that a lot of peope whose Golden has been diagnosed as affected have also commented that the dog has IBD or lots of food intolerances.
I posted and specifically asked whether people have noticed their dog with ichthyosis also has stomach issues, and the answers are coming back "yes".
So just wanted to put it out here, too. Not sure if anyone even has an affected dog, but if you do, or know of one, just curious if the theme of accompanying stomach issues is just a coincidence, or are they more common in Ichthyosis affected dogs???
Thanks for any observations or comments.
