Maggie's Progress

Hi everyone! Little Maggie is doing great! She is getting quite plump actually haha. She's starting to get a little fat roll on her shoulders lol...Last Friday at the vet she only weighed 4.5 lbs. She looks so much bigger now and since she's on medicine for coccidia, and the dosage is based on weight, I stopped by and had her weighed. She is now 10.8 lbs!!! They said the parasite could have been affecting her weight. She is now about 6 weeks old. Is 10.8 lbs too much for her? I've been feeding her 4 times a day, about a 1/3 cup per meal. She's on a soupy mixture of of softened puppy kibble, canned/wet puppy food, Science Diet a/d food, and puppy milk replacer (because of her age). I know what I'm giving her is pretty high calorie... not sure when I should start to cut back on the extra stuff (milk, a/d food, wet puppy food)

She is such a happy puppy and loves her food! Here's some new pics - just for fun

I am so happy Maggie is doing well and that she has such a devoted dog Mom! She is beautiful. I don't have any idea regarding when to change what you are feeding her but I'm sure someone who knows a lot more than I do with chime in. We rescued a Labrador retriever/welsh corgi when she was 4 weeks old. Someone had left her at a pet store when they didn't know what to do with her. She lived 16-1/2 wonderful years - may you have as many with Maggie!

I would say around 7 to 8 weeks you could probably start feeding her just the puppy food. That would be when most puppies come home. Although moistening it with water at that time probably wouldn't hurt.
