    Defaultslowly growing

    Hello, I adopted a lab when she was thought to be about 12 weeks old, she is now about 5 months old. She is a yellow lab and is thought to be part border collie, but I see mostly lab. Just wondering on how big she is going to get, I know it's hard to say without knowing the parents, but does anyone have any guesses with past experiences, she is about 5 months and 30 pounds, we feed her a little over 3 cups a day over 3 servings of earthborn grain free. She has a very long tail lol. She has big paws and has always had big paws. We were told to cut down to 2 servings at 6 months.

    You can see her ribs in the middle picture. She is certainly not starving, but I dunno about cutting her back How quickly does she eat her food? If it only takes a few minutes, I would consider adding a half cup to her meals for a couple months, then take a picture for comparison purposes.

    I have been giving her a little over 4 cups a day now. I have always given her treats and carrots throughout the day. She is a slow eater, probably like 2 minutes, but she takes a long time to eat carrots and treats too. She just lost 2 teeth this week too if that matters lol.
