    This question was submitted during the webinar titled: PU - What's That? Golden Retriever Pigmentary Uveitis:

    Should we be more worried if our young dogs are being diagnosed with GRPU early?

    Dr. Wendy Townsend, DVM, MS, DACVO responded:


    If a Golden is diagnosed at a younger age, this is always concerning to me because even if we catch them early and slow progression with topical therapy, the chance that they will have complications is higher if they live to be 10-12 years of age or older just because they will have had the condition longer.
