10 week old vizsla weight

Hi Guys! I have a 10 week old vizsla who I weighed this morning. Turns out he's 18lbs. Is this on the big side? I couldn't really find any information on normal weight ranges for puppies online. Any answers would be appreciated!!! 8)

Re: 10 week old vizsla weight

Yes, you have a large boy on your hands; however, use caution when evaluating weight ranges. If your vet thinks your V is healthy, he appears to be in good weight, you are feeding a quality food minus table scraps, and he is active, then I would not worry. Puppies will go through growth spurts at different times, some home scales/methods of weighing are off, and depending on the parents/lines, some Vs are simply going to be larger than others. If you are really worried, post some pics & speak with your vet

Sounds like he's on the big side, but I wouldn't worry about it. I've never seen a fat Vizsla puppy. He's just healthy!

Re: 10 week old vizsla weight

ours is 18lbs at 10 weeks also, only eats a good puppy food, and you can see his ribs.

he looks normal and healthy, active around the house, (he can go out in 1 week)

post a pic as normal weight depends on height really, but as the puppy, if hes on a good food i wouldnt worry at this young age, you want them to eat well while they grow

He's big and adorable. My boy Dax was 12 lbs at 10 weeks. He's a year old now and weighs 50.

One of the contributors to this forum has compiled a chart of his dog Bohdi's growth that I found very useful.

Re: 10 week old vizsla weight

We took Lucy to the vet yesterday she was 17.8lbs at 11 weeks. Vet had no concerns about her weight. You can still see her little ribs. She is extremely active. She is a little piggy, as she gulps her food down in less than a minute. Walking from the kitchen to her crate with her food, you better watch out she goes nuts and literally flies into the crate!
