  1. Is my puppy underweight?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    This is my Puppy Graham, I've had him since 8 weeks and he is 13 weeks old today. Last week he had a vet appointment and he weighed a little under 20 pounds. I asked the vet and they said his weight was alright. I've been feeding him Purina Pro Plan for large breed puppies. Two cups a day split...
  2. Not eating enough

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi y’all I am the proud new owner of a 6 (almost 7) week old golden puppy. We took him to the vet and she said that he was underweight. He’s eating about 1-1.5 cups of food per day which I know isn’t enough. He never seems to finish everything that’s in his bowl. Should I try switching his...

    Hello! I have recently decided to get a GR for my family. I got him 3-4 days ago and he is the first dog we ever owned.

  4. My new puppy might not be what I was told....

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello all! I recently adopted a puppy from someone on the Internet. Now, they told me he is a purebred English Cream Golden born on March 23, but I'm having some serious concerns that one of those might not be true. He's only 14 lbs (yes he did have parasites but they're gone now and he eats...

    Frankie was extremely malnourished when I brought him home. He was about 10-11 weeks and 8.1 pounds. He was part of a huge litter at a puppy mill and then at 4 weeks was rescued by a goat farmer and given goat milk. He is now 14-15 weeks and up to 17.5 pounds but the most finicky puppy I...

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello everyone, My 3 month golden retriever Phoebe is 10.5 kg. The vet says she is underweight. Do you think so too? I read a couple of articles on the internet, some say she is fine and some say she is underweight. I am confused. We were giving her Royal Canin Maxi Starter (the best brand of...
  7. Two Year Old Golden Won't Keep On Weight

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    My dog Melo turned two in September and only weighs 61.6 lbs. This might be normal for some Goldens, but Melo is very tall and his ribs show and his waist is small. People have even stopped us on the street accusing us of malnourishment, which was humiliating and extremely upsetting. He's...
  8. Food advice needed

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Ok, so maybe I'm jumping the gun a bit here, but I'm starting to worry about Shiloh's eating habits. For anyone who hasn't been following Shiloh's story, we brought her home at 8 weeks and she promptly became sick. She was already grossly undersized (2lbs 13oz at 8 weeks!) and to make a long...
  9. Skinny pup!

    Golden Retriever Nutrition, Feeding & Recipes
    Hi, Our family has just adopted a 2 1/2 year old golden male, and he seems terribly skinny. His previous owner said that he weighed 55lbs at his last vet check. He really can't weigh much more than that now. His spine and ribs stick out all knobby under his fur as does his skull. He stands...
