He is over 8 months now I think and he's slowed down growing a lot. When did your golden stop growing?
Max's weight is probably fine for males. By lean I mean she doesnt look overweight and has defined muscle lines. We are just being careful not to over feed her.Geez, Max is WAY over 60 pounds I'm thinking. I'll know for sure when we get him weighed today. If Joy is lean, I don't see how it is a good idea to limit her food even more. I can't imagine stunting a childs growth because he's too tall for his age - I mean, we don't do that, why would we do that to a dog? Unless she's chunky....but if she's not...I don't know if it's a good idea to give them less than they should be getting to stunt their growth...which is what the idea is, right? I also realize I don't have any experience or knowledge to put towards this - just common sense wise it doesn't seem like a good idea.
Max has been on adult food the past month plus and that's continued to slow his growth down but like I said, I think he's beyond Joy weight wise and has no problem "supporting" his weight/size. I will also be asking the vet about this as well to see if maybe his size is a potential problem?
