My little guy will be 5 weeks old in 3 days, he's half St-Bernard and half Inuit sled dog. I adopted him last wednesday and I weighed him at 3.6lbs. Today, 4 days later he's 5lbs. Am I feeding him too much? Is he growing too fast? Is 5 lbs big for his age? any info wuld be appreciated.

Thanks

For Saint bernards at 4 weeks they are about 6-7 pounds.. at 5 weeks they should weigh approximately 8-9 pounds. Seeing as he's half Saint, 5 pounds seems about right.

How does he look to you? Chubby, thin or just right?
