Weeks Vs Months?

When you have a pup under a year old, how do you measure their age? Alexa will be 20 weeks on Saturday. Is she 5 months old then? I'm not sure why, but this is confusing me Her b-day is April 25

Re: Weeks Vs Months?

I have a 6 month old puppy (depending on how you count it) and I think it's confusing too!!!!

No, she is 20 weeks. or 4 1/2 months. She will be 5 months on the 25th.

I say their age in weeks until their 6 month "b-day."

Re: Weeks Vs Months?

I have been going by weeks, Karlo and Glory / G litter are 27 weeks~
6 months+ 1 week 3/02 whelpday. I may just go to months from now on as it is getting harder to remember how many weeks this litter is since they turned 6 mos!
I had to go back to see the weight chart to see how many he was this week!

Stark will be 5 months old tomorrow... Oh how time flies...

I count by weeks up until they are 5 months old. I have a hard time remembering how many weeks he is... haha.

Re: Weeks Vs Months?

One thing I see in signatures above is the age instead of the whelpdate. It would be better to have the date so you don't have to change it, and everyone can figure out your pups/dogs age by that...

That's a good idea.

Re: Weeks Vs Months?

You can keep track of her age in weeks or months, however you choose. But if you use weeks, a week is counted from the day of the week she was born - in Alexa's case, from Saturday to Saturday, (I know because April 25th is also my birthday ) and if you use months, it's from the day of the month - April 25th to May 25th to June 25th, etc.
