Hasn't gained weight this month?

My 8 month old male was 71lb in May and still the same this month? Is this normal?

I would be concerned if he was losing weight. Rusty pretty much stayed between 67-69 pounds well over a year old. If he's eating, drinking and pooping ok - would not worry.

Weight gain slows down at about 7-8 months. They also become more agile and athletic. I would not worry as long as all other parameters, energy, appetite, pooping, etc are normal.

Both Onyx and Karlo plateau'd around 8 months of age. Which was a good thing!
