i have a bully who is 5 months old and weighs 5.75 kg ..which is odd for me because he is too small for a 5month bully..for wat i know bullies grow really fast.. i have a pitbull w/c is turning 4months having almost the same weight.. my bully had lack of calcium ..when he got here he couldnt stand up .. i think its rickets or something .anyways..ryt now he could run and walk already but sometimes slip on slippery surfaces.. i think his muscles and bones are still underdeveloped..and for what i have observed ..his growth is slowly developing ..ill post some of his pictures as soon as i can . . i need ur opinions on what should i do ..i gave him tablets for calcium and milk with high calcium content ..i think he is improving ..but his growth is slow..

I dont even know weights in Kg lol only pounds , but if he was sick and had issues its not uncommon for them to be on the smaller side, give him time to grow 5 months is still very young they will continue to grow till atleast age 2 take sa long time to fill out. Once he gets a bit older you will be able to work him a bit more and put some muscle on him, feed him well { a good food with all the nutrients} and exercise daily { right now just walks and play sessions } and let him be a puppy. bullys arent all the 100lb beasts people claim to have my girls luna and pep are only in at 60-65lbs pep is full grown luna is just a year so might put on another 5lbs or so not expecting much. But you can find bullys at the 40lb mark all the way up to the 100lb mark.

ok if he is 5.75 kg its 12.68lbs. id say thats small but like I said if it had issues before it will take a bit to bounce back and catch up , most likely could be a smaller bully full grown . as long as he is healthy now and eating right that should be all that matters .

I would skip the milk and give him the dog food in the morning instead. I see you are in the Philippines? Not sure what kind of dog foods you have access to there. Feed him the dog food 3x a day. he doesn't need milk anymore. Good luck.....can you post pictures of him??

A high quality dog food should be sufficient, there are a lot of foods (here in the US, I`m not so sure about the Philippines, never been there) that are specifically for puppies that have supporting nutrients for growing pups.
I personally feed Blue Puppy If you can get that out there, I would highly recommend it.
& no, no more milk.
