More great information about our breed. Did you know there are two styles of English Setter? One is the Bench type...which Rigel and Apollo are. But there is Field type that is more a "Hunting" style setter. And, we come in LOTS of colors - orange, blue, tri (orange/blue/white), lemon and liver.
"Since I graduated from veterinary school in 1965, I've noticed a general deterioration in pet health. We now see very young animals with diseases that we used to see only in older animals. Without the perspective of several decades, vets just coming out of veterinary school think these degenerative conditions in younger animals are "normal." They do not realize what has happened over the passage of time. Dr. Richard Pitcairn D.V.M
