hello guys, my puppy sakura is 2 months old now and she weigh 5 kilos, is it a normal weight for my 2 month old puppy? shes not a fast eater, she consume her food gradually, eat a little then walk, play and sleep then when she woke up eat again then play and sleep.. she consumes 500 grams of dog food in 3 to 3 and half day..
she is very active, loves to jump and run all over the house.. i need advice.. thanx..
Maui was around 17 pounds at 9 weeks. Not sure how that translates. I think you are probably a little low but i think 5 kilos is somewhere around 10 pounds...?
5kgs is about 11lbs which sounds just right. They all grow at different rates.
500 grams sounds like a lot of food for an 8 week old pup. That is about 5 cups. My dogs were definitely not eating that much at that age. Your pup may need that amount in a few months time to support her growth but it does seem like an awful lot for now. What guidelines did your breeder give you for feeding?
My breeder told me to give her 3 cups a day.. but my sister sometimes just put some food on his bowl without measuring..
thanx for the advice guys.. i guess i dont have to worry.. maybe she is so active, because my vet told me that my puppy is so active, maybe thats why shes not that heavy =)
Ok, but 500 grams is 5 cups.My breeder told me to give her 3 cups a day.. but my sister sometimes just put some food on his bowl without measuring..
I'm afraid that we have a bit of a chunker on our hands. At almost 9 weeks, Bentley was 19.8 pounds. The vet isn't overly concerned, but we'll definitely be keeping a close eye on him and make sure that he evens out as he starts to grow a bit more. He eats just over a cup of food 3x a day and as we continue to wean him off of his current food and onto a grain-free food (which seems to be working well with his digestive system), that amout will decrease a bit.
I do love that little puppy belly
my pup is 14-15 weeks old and he only gets 2 cups a day!
Does she get 500g (5 cups) of food per day, or over 3 to 3.5 days?? ???
my sakura now is good, she consumes 3 cups per day.. look at her cute pic below..
