Can someone fill me in on the general window for ave. weight on a 8-9 week old pup? Im trying to narrow down if my pup Crash-which was a stray-is a bit over weight to help me determine what is causing his slight knuckling/bowing.
He was around 10lbs on Wed. I had him on Taste Of The Wild High Prairie which was around 32% protein and I have switched to the Smoked Salmon which is around 28% just in case it was to much protein. I cut back the amount of food I was giving him to half and I have him wrapped in Vetrap ( thank god for products like Fooey!!!
) as per instructions here using the "search" function and Greatdanlady.com. I cut back on exercise cause I have noticed that was when it seemed to knuckle over the most. In the morning for a hour or so he appears OK.
I understand as a stray he is most likely malnourished but exactly how to determine if this is the cause is beyond me. I dont wanna just go supplementing him if not needed and make the matters worse.
Any info would be great!
