5 Month German Shepherd Weight

Chief is 5 month and 1 week old. He currently weighs 62lbs. He eats 1.5 cups in the morning and night. He does not look fat just has a big bone structure. I am getting concerned that his rapid growth and weight gain may affect his hips. Is he to big for his age? Should I be concerned?

It would be easier to know if he was over weight with a picture. (One picture from the top looking down, one from the side) that would really help us know if he was over weight

Cosette is a big GSD as well... Bigger than both of her parents. The doctor just told me not to walk her too strenuously for the first 6 months... he also recommended coconut oil for GSD's.

Sarge is the same age/weight as Chief. I have been giving him Coconut oil as a supplement and he just licks it out of my palm. I give him about a teaspoon a day. I think as long as they r not whining and/or limping around they are just meant to be BIG. Sarge doesnt look fat either, I woundnt worry too much.
