Does Xyla look under weight? She is 31lbs, 3 months 2 weeks old. She seem to stop growing the last week. I feed her 2 cups total, one in morning and one at night of a mix of blue wilderness puppy and Diamond Natural adult.

Should I feed her more? She is very active all day.

She looks fine to me. Although 2 cups of food does not seem like enough. But each puppy is different.

I would go with puppy food and read the label on the back. thats a very good weight for a female her age I would think.

I think she looks lovely! I would go with the back of the bag if all else fails. All I know is my pup's weight fluctuated drastically for the first 6 months and it all seemed to be related to his growth spurts. It didn't matter how much I fed him. If he was going through a growth spurt he would thin out no matter how much I fed him. He is now 8 months old and still fluctuating a lot but less dramatic.

I don't think she looks thin at all. In fact she looks portly compared to my bony guy (a constant battle to get him to not look like a hide over a skeleton). My 12 week old male (13 weeks tomorrow!) is eating over FOUR 1/2 cups a day right now. I'm transitioning him to a higher calorie food so I don't have to feed so much bulk to get in calories. He weighed 27 lb 4 oz last week. His old food only has 336 cal a cup (Chicken Soup for LBP-the food the breeder weaned the litter on); his new food has 450 cal a cup (BB LBP).
