at 2 mos old he wieghed 12lbs., now at almost 6 months, he wieghs 46 lbs. Just wondering if he is getting too big too fast. He still eats 3 times a day and a very good 5 star dog food "Merritt brand". Is there some sort of dog weight chart I can get????
I can only answer from my own experience. We only feed our dogs twice a day. Morning and evening. My tallest Springer gets 1 1/4 cup and my smaller gets 1 cup at each feeding. They both weigh 48 to 50 lbs. The vet said they look perfect. Best way to tell if your dog is overweight is to basically look at him from above him. They should have some shape. Slightly in around the area before their hips. If they are pretty much the same all the way along their torso then they may be a little overweight. Doesn't sound like you really need to worry much, maybe just cut back the food to twice a day and walks are great for keepig the weight down. Hope this helps a little.
