I bought a twelve week old chihuahua female and at the time she weighed 1 pound 9 oz. She is now nineteen weeks old and weighs over six pounds. Is it unusual for a puppy to triple their weight in such a short time?

That does seems alot in a little time. I am not sure, I know puppies do tend to grow fast. Are you sure the inital weight was correct? Sometimes scales are accurate, or people don't set the puppy on it long enough. If she isn't over weight, and the vets says everything is fine. I wouldn't worry to much. Hopefully someone on here will be able to give you more info.
