Is it ok that our 8 week old chocolate lab only weighs 8lbs 15 oz?
We just got a new chocolate labrador puppy which came from a litter of 9 dogs. When we visited them at 5 weeks old they all seemed roughly the same size and the breeder said they were about 5lbs at that time. When we got him at 8 weeks and went to the vet he weighed in at 8lbs 15oz. Is this too small? Everyone keeps telling me he is way to small, he is eating 3/4 cup of food three times a day pretty consistantly but everything I read says an 8 week old lab is between 13 and 18lbs. Just concerned that this isn't normal and he has some underlying health issue. The vet didn't say anything about his size though. Has anyone else had a lab of this size?
