So we just got our black lab puppy he's 8 weeks and 17 lbs... he's a little chubby ..... we are feeding him blue large breed puppy food....2 cups a day .... he was chubby from when we got him from the breeder so hopefully on this diet he evens out..... my concern is he doesn't poop 30 mins to an hour after he eats .... he will eat and then poop 4-5 hrs later I'm concered.... and comments on his pooping habit or the dog food I'm feeding him?
Nothing out of the ordinary. Don't look for trouble.
Oh and an 8 week old puppy does not need a diet. 17# is fine for them. Think 10# per month of age. If you put the pup on a diet, they will start pulling calcium from their bones when they start teething, and you'll end up with a thin legged lab that doesn't look like a lab.
