  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. Pup size

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Everyone always says, "he's going to be a big boy!" based on the size of his paws.... he's 6 months old and 42lbs. I feel like this is just average. Curious for others to weigh in on their pups and their weights at various ages. He's at least 3-4 feet tall when he stands on his hind legs. Hope...
  3. Overweight Sire and/or Dam a Concern?

    Choosing A Golden Retriever Breeder & Puppy
    Thanks in advance for your help! We are looking to adopt a golden retriever this summer and have found a breeder with all health clearances and a reputation in our area for very good temperaments in her puppies. My only concern is that the sire and dam are both nearing 100 pounds, which seems...
  4. "Stunted" from vaccine

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hey everyone! I want to get some feedback on my little guy (emphasis on the little). He will be 7 months old next week and last week at the vet he came in at only 43 pounds. When he got his 9 week shots he had a horrific reaction. He was unable to walk let alone move. Thousands of dollars...

  6. Ideal Body Condition?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello! I was wondering if I could get some feedback on whether my puppy (4.5 months) looks a little on the chunkier side. I work at a vet clinic and the vet gave her a BCS of 6/9. She said since she's still a puppy it's ok to have a little bit of fat, but other than that she's in pretty good...
  7. Neutering etc.

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    As I have read the many posts on neutering along with the many articles on neutering I'm still in a quandary as to proceeding, as the process is so permanent. Woven throughout the many articles I have read is the social responsibility that goes with neutering (and of course, spaying). Boomer's...

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi all. First post. Disclaimer that my wife and I are first time dog owners, so apologies for any naivety or unnecessary paranoia! My wife and I got an extremely cute female golden retriever (Zoey) in early November (brought home at 8 weeks). Overall, she has been doing well and completed...

  10. Chelsey is small!

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hi guys! New member:) great to meet you all! So I went traveling with my one year old female golden retriever (she turned one year old just the day before yesterday!) and we saw many other female goldens on our way, and they were much bigger/taller than she is! And older of course, some with...
  11. Puppy Weight/Height

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hey everyone! I recently posted a similar thread about puppies but I would like to know what your puppies weights were at each age. I know this depends on their genetics but I was still curious :) Here are some of Maci's documented weights : 8 weeks- 10 pounds 9 weeks- 12 pounds 10 weeks- 15...
  12. Is 90lb overweight for a 1.5 yr old male golden?

    Golden Retriever Nutrition, Feeding & Recipes
    My golden is about 1.5 yr old and he currently weighs 90lb. He seems to have a larger bone frame than other goldens. I feed him 3 cups per day of Purina Pro Plan. I'm just wondering if he is overweight. And how can I tell whether he is or not. Thank you :)
  13. Neuter- Effects after Snip-Snip

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Well Hank has his date set which will be around ten months old. I have been told that after Snip-Snip that we will really have to watch his weight as it would slow down his metabolism. I was wondering if that meant following the amount of food that is listed on the bag or if that usually means...

  15. Puppy Weight

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    We have a 4 1/2 month old Golden Retriever. We're told she is a "Field" Retriever which I guess means she's slightly smaller and skinnier than other Goldens? Her mom & dad were definitely on the lanky side & not as fluffy as other goldens I've seen. Anyways, she only weighs about 22 pounds or so...

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    If anyone has the English/British/European/Canadian type golden, how much does yours weigh? I read they may be heavier/blockier than American lines. I just weighed my baby at 9 months and she is 64 lbs! I feed about 2.5 cups of Fromm Surf& Turf or Chicken a la veg with chicken breast or salmon...
  17. Rescued 4 month old puppy- Mix or Full Golden?

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    My husband and I rescued our golden retriever "mix" puppy 3 weeks ago who is now an estimated 4 months old. We're trying to get an idea if he is basically all golden retriever or if he could be mixed with another breed. He only weighs 14 lbs right now and I don't know if it's because he is...
  18. Puppy weight

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hey there, I have a female 12 week old golden retreiver and she is 21 lbs. She looks great, not overweight at all. I can feel her ribs when I rub her sides with no problem. She gets 3/4 cup 3x a day. We were just up north and going on walks and swimming so I don't know if part of the large...
  19. How skinny should a Golden be?

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    I have a female Golden who is rather short and weighs 78 pounds. She used to be 86, which my vet said was obese. She also has Cushing's Disease and a rather sizable pot belly. I can feel her ribs if I lightly press my fingers, but the more worrisome is the sharp area after her ribs end (moving...
  20. • Loss of Appetite?

    Golden Retriever Puppy (up to 1 year)
    Hello All, I'm posting to ask if it's normal for pups to sometimes "lose" their appetite. For the first couple months that we had Max, he pretty much inhaled his food at every meal. Not a kibble left in the dish. He was always very anxious to be fed and came running the second he heard the...
