I FINALLY took Kaiser to a nearby vet to get him weighed. I haven't used their scale before, so I'm not sure exactly HOW much error to expect, but apparently Kaiser has lost 2 pounds.
A little background:
He weighed approximately 65 pounds for about a month (this was almost 2 months ago). Then about 3-4 weeks ago I took him to a vet just to get his weight and their scale read 66.5. That made sense to me, since I do know that they grow in spurts. However, almost a month goes by and now he is back down to 64.5? Can that be right?
I realize the best method is to use the same scale every time. I won't really know until I get back home and use my personal scale (assuming I can even pick him up by then, lol).
I know 2 pounds makes a much bigger difference in smaller breeds than large breeds, but assuming the scales were calibrated the "same" and he has been eating the same, should I be concerned about a "measly" 2 pounds?
He is 9 months and 3 weeks old now.
