Re: 10 Week of Vizsla Weight

Coming from a Vizsla owner that has a small girl - they come in all sizes. I think Ruby was around that size at that age. She is 7 months now and 37 lbs. She was the runt so we knew she would be small.

As long as Addy is eating, she should be fine. They do get growth spurts from time to time. Enjoy the moments when she is small like this

Ruby - born 12/24/10....our Christmas Eve baby!

Our V was at 12lbs at that age but they will all vary. I would just keep on eye on food and activity level etc. You will be surprised at how good they are at communicating their needs.

Just feed her as much as she wants to eat of a quality food. She'll figure out the rest

Re: 10 Week of Vizsla Weight

Our "little boy" will be 10 weeks old on Wednesday, and he already weighs 16 lbs! I guess he must be tall for his age, because he is not overweight at all. In fact, we can see his ribs. He's on Puppy Pro Plan, which is what the breeder had him on, and she insists that we not change his food at this age. We were just feeding him 1 c. a day (plus a bunch of training treats), but we have increased to 1 1/2 c. (1/2 c. three times/day) plus treats. He has his first vet appointment tomorrow morning, so we will see what he says. He devours his food and wants to eat everything in sight - grass, dirt, sticks, cardboard, paper, etc. The twigs are really tough to keep out of his mouth, because we have so many in our yard.

As stated above they come in all shapes and sizes. Our V Mac weighed in at 20lbs at 10 weeks. He is a big boy though. Don't worry your vet will let you know.

We got Cruise at 11-weeks and we were told to feed him 1/4 cup 3X a day. He literally sucked up that amount in 10-seconds. I bumped this up to 1-cup twice a day and he eats at a normal pace now. His 12-week weight was 17lbs. I also noticed that upping his food amount decreased his lawn mowing and stick chomping.
