    Default growth question

    At what age to they meet their max height....and what age do they start slowing down on growing. Seems like our babies keep getting bigger and bigger and bigger.. Curious what your bully weighed at 6 months..ours are around 40 lbs. Gracie was 6 lbs when we got her and Cooper was 4 lbs
    Also some of you have said watch for allergies, they come on when they are a little older ...what signs should I be looking for to know if they are allergic to something.

    I pretty sure that bullies reach their full growth around 18 months

    My boy is a peanut, full grown only 45 lbs of spring- loaded muscle.... And it took him 2 years to plateau there

    The allergies can show up as teary eyes, chronic ear infection, rashes/ redness on skin, excessive itchiness anywhere, licking/biting at paws, hives, gastro problems.....

    Allergies are a pain....i hope you never have to deal with them....but if you do the folks here have seen it all and are a great resource

    Welcome

    Each bully is different, but around 18-24 months is about average for growth to stop. If I remember correctly, Nitschke was about 45 lbs at six months and leveled out between 56-58 lbs for his whole life. Banks, well, 'pudgy' at 1 year was 70lbs (yes, our vet was NOT happy with us)... after a green bean diet she now holds between 58-62.

    allergies -- every bully tends to have at least one. My guys are loaded with them.. environmental , you name it they are allergic to it. Banks is highly allergic to Chicken so we feed grain free Fromm Beef Fritatta.

    Signs of any allergy is usually runny eyes, ear infections, red chin, flaky skin, scratching, very soft/runny and others.

    if you get to where you think they are showing signs -- save yourself a lot of frustration and your baby a lot of discomfort by getting a full blood screen allergy test. Will run about $300 but in the long run you will save a LOT once you have the results.

    -017-jpgHere's our Usko at 6 months and around 40lbs. He has probably reached his max height now at 15 months(56lbs) but is going to get heavier, if he takes after his dad, until he's about 3years old. We expect him to be around 65. He's on raw food and is a picky eater. You can only really get rid of tear stains with the right kind of food. Other wise your're just taking care of the sympton not the cause.

    both my dogs have tear stains, but switching to filtered Drinking water from tap has helped some. Also, I have read that when they stop teething the tearing stops as well. we will see I guess. I also give them Apple cider vinegar. They are on fromm surf and turf and will try the beef frittata next. I had them on raw up to one month ago but they had tear stains too.. When was Cooper born. My Katara is 6 months too and Aldo about to turn 6 months.. we got teenager pups girlfriend! lol!
