I've been watching Atticus closely whereas he seems to have days where he will do nothing. Won't play..., sleeps a lot..., no energy. I have taken him to the vet who said he has coccidia which we treated with 5 days of albon (250 mg tab first day, then 125 mg tab for 4 more days.) I don't know if he still has it or not whereas we haven't done another fecal test and the vet said we should wait a couple weeks.
I was wondering what type of growth rate should be expected for my little guy? I've been monitoring his weight pretty much daily (I know, I'm neurotic.) I will weigh myself, then pick him up and weigh us..., and calculate the difference.
At 8 and half weeks he weighed 10.5 lbs.
At 9 weeks he weighed 11 lbs.
At 10 weeks (in 2 days) he now weighs 12 lbs.
Doesn't this seem a little light and a little slow?
I found this chart online but don't know about it's validity....

9 wks. - 10-14 lbs.
