Gaining too much weight too fast?
Bently is now 17 weeks old is has gained almost two pounds in the last couple of weeks.......
I don't think we are overfeeding him..... he is on Science Diet and gets a little bit of boiled white chicken each day (maybe two teaspoons and 1 teaspoon of apple every other day..... as for the Science Diet I hand feed him at night and don't force him. I feed him until he stops eating, which usually is pretty quick. He does still get treats when he goes outside and P's&P's..... usually about 3 to 4 treats a day expecially on weekends.
We run in the backyard every night and have been taking him on walks around the block at least 3 times a week.
Should I be worried or is he just a growing boy?

Kingston gained one pound in two weeks and the vet said that is fine. Maybe he is just having a growing spurt.

Aiden did the same thing. I was brining him into the vet every two weeks. He gained 2lbs every two weeks He's 5 mo and last seen he was 8lb 6oz and that was 6/12/08. He's scheduled for neutering 8/13/08 I bet he's alittle more. He looks bigger,but when he's wet he's a peanut. I'm sure the vet will tell you the same thing. He told me, that he's almost done growing. As long as he's active,he's fine.
