    Default how much a pup should weigh at 4-5 weeks

    Lola is at the vet right now and I was wondering how much a EB puppy should weight at 4 weeks 4 days? The breeder was saying Lola's litter is one of the biggest litters she has had when we were texting last night and that she would find out today how much she weighs. She was 9 oz when she was born. Does anyone know how I find out this info?

    Found this on a website
    • One Month

      • As the puppy grows, the owner or breeder should expect to see a 1 pound weight gain per week. By the end of the first four weeks, the puppy should weigh around 4 pounds.

      Two Months

      • At eight weeks, the puppy should be approximately 8 pounds in size. However, some dogs may weigh slightly more or slightly less.

      Three Month

      • As expected, at 12 weeks the puppy should weigh somewhere around 12 pounds. Of course, variations may occur and some dogs may weigh more or less than 12 pounds.

    For those of you who breed is this about right?

    Just got the text from my breeder Lola was 8.5 lbs today is that normal for a puppy that is almost 5 weeks? The smallest puppy of the litter was 8 lbs and the biggest was a little over 11 lbs is that normal?

    You know they can really vary in weight. Jake's litter had huge differences in weight until they were about a year old! And now they are very close to the same in weight nd height! It oes sound "normal" to me though!

    It does really depend on the pup because they will very. They may be a little big but not that much. I would rather have app a little on the fat side then one on the skinny side. Once they get older and start to slow down on their growing, then you can start to thin them up a little.

    She looks very big boned too so that may also be why they are heavier for that age. I wish I could see her next to something, like a coke can that I could see size!

    I just texted her and ask her for a picture of her next to a object like a loaf of bread or something like that and she usually sends me what I ask for may not be tonight but she will get it to me. She does look big boned to me so maybe!
