    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.

    Don't worry about poundage, look at the dog's condition and judge if it's the proper weight by that.
