What is the range of a healthy weight for a male black lab that is four years old?
Hamilton, Rescued October 4, 2011 at the age of four, background unknown. Hamilton is extremely lovable!!!!
the answer will be over the map. the healthy weight should be discuseed with your vet. you should feel but not see the ribs. my boy is healthy at 80. that is where i try to keep him. but there is no rule for labs "in general" because so many people breed them, some to the standard and most not to the standard.

It really depends on the dog...but my boy is also a solid 80 lbs and I think he looks great.

i agree with above.my boy is 16 months and is healthy looking 91.2 pounds.
Don't worry about poundage, look at the dog's condition and judge if it's the proper weight by that.
