Not much weight gain from 6 to 12 months

When I took Nikita in and had her spayed at 6 months she weighed about 50 pounds.. When I took her in a few weeks ago (now 12 months) she only weighed about 54 pounds. She looks like she has grown some, but I am confused. I know she isn't finished growing, but is only 4 pounds normal for a 6 month period? She looked/looks almost perfect...

Re: Not much weight gain from 6 to 12 months

Siren gained 10 lbs from 6 to 12 months.

Maybe Nikita was a little "heavy" at 6 months. I'm not saying she was FAT. But she could have been a lb or 2 heavier for her size than she is now. (Does that make sense?)

There is the chance that it is a scale issue too. (Could have been a little "off" then or now.)

Re: Not much weight gain from 6 to 12 months

I am wondering the same thing:

It seems like they should still be growing, but I don't know.
