Puppies should be lean as they're growing. If you can feel but not see his ribs that's a good sign he's a good weight. You'll probably have to add and cut back on portions several times until his growth slows down

Tyson looks good in the picture. My 2 females "self regulated". We fed kibble usually topped with some raw beef or chicken. They ate what they wanted and left the rest. Our male (8 months) will eat till he pops, so we have to watch his weight/appearance more closely.

5.5 kgs is just over 12 pounds and that is a good weight for a 10 week old pup.
chicken necks are probably the better option -- more meat , natural chondroitin for pup's own connective tissue, softer bone that he can consume .

we tried chicken necks and he dangerously swallows them whole thats why we opted for the larger brisket bone, he loves them

its my understanding brisket bone is a soft bone, one in which they can eat the entire thing without it causing harm. Correct me if im wrong?? Tyson has regular bowel movements daily and they are healthy ones neither too loose or too firm :)

People come in all sizes and shapes... My girl just turned one last week and is very lean only 54 pds...but amazingly fast. My boy and 6 months and 70 pds, solid muscle. My vet says they are perfect and both will still grow. They get plenty of play time, As long as they are healthy and happy:)
