Default I have a question about age.

If I go off weeks, my boy will be 18 1/2 weeks. That would be 4.5 months. But by my vet, she goes off the 2 of every month (birthday 2/2/2014) which she says he is 4 months 1 week. Which one do y'all go off of? Weeks or months of the day they were born?

I go by the day they are born. I'd calculate it just like your vet did. Except for February, there's always a few days more than 4 weeks in a month.

The day they were born, so Draven was born 6/30 so every month on the 30th he is a month older.

LOL I put my cat's bday down instead of his! OOPS!

That would make my boy younger then I thought. So he would be 4months, not 4 and half like I thought. Thank you. I was so confused.
