    Defaultsize and nutrition

    very curious about my new labs size and feeding. Bailey is 4 months and 1 week and is 25 lbs.. Her mother is 65 lbs. and her father is 80 lbs. I keep reading of labs that are 40 and 50 lbs. at this age and am curious if she is under weight. Any guess on how big she will be? I am also feeding her a cup and half twice a day. Any advice on how much i should be feeding her?

    That does seem small to me, but if your vet says she's healthy, then she probably is.

    Can you feel ribs? See ribs? What are you feeding her?

    I can see her ribs a little bit. I feed her Royal Canin. I would like to get her to proper weight without over feeding her. She is getting taller by the day but she is not gaining any weight around her ribs and body area

    You will need to feed her more. If you can see her ribs, you are not overfeeding her.
