    Default Weight Gain

    Hello Everyone,

    I'm thinking this is normal but wanted to check in with you guys. Winston was gaining weight pretty steadily, averaging about 2lbs per week since we brought him home. He is 15 weeks as of yesterday and gained 7lbs in one week. Is that normal? We could almost see him growing before our eyes. He is now 26lbs and last week at his vet check, he was 19. He eats about 2 1/2 - 3 cups of Taste of the Wild each day. No snacks in between but a scoop of yogurt with his dinner.

    Doesn't seem off.... but they all grow differently. He is a good chart to use for feeding/age, keep in mind the company will have the higher end of the chart to ensure you have to buy more food

    8 weeks 1/2 cup 3 times a day
    12 weeks 2/3 to 3/4 cup 3 times a day
    4 & 5 months 3/4 cup 3 times a day
    6 months to 1 year 1.25 to 1.5 cups twice a day
