The reason i'm asking.Jag will be 2years next month.
and we have no been seeing other wiems.2 of them were 2 1/2.1 weighed 70lbs the other was 68lbs.and was talking to a woman with 2 3year olds.all of them were smaller then jag at 82lbs and younger.i'm a little worried about his size compared to the others.and hip problems.what do you all think.

Jag looks great :cloud9: . I wouldn't worry about the fact he is a bit bigger. There is a group of weims that walks where I used to and they are all quite varied in size. I think any breed and especially the larger breeds have a varied size range. Does he show any symptoms of having hip problems? If there is no stiffness or pain yet by this age then I would say it probably won't be an issue. You could always supplement with glucosamine for added peace of mind.

TeriM.No to none.i just don't know if he gets any bigger if it's going to be good for him health wise.

jag is looking superb! don't worry a bit. he's glossy, well proportioned, slowly getting his muscles in and maturing very nicely. i wouldn't be surprised to see him at 90 lbs or more in a couple of years - raw diets do add to heavy muscle weight and thick proper bones. hims just a big boy, that's all ... :highfive: :cloud9:

Thanks technodoll.also wasn't sure if i should raise or cut back on the food.he's still at 2lbs to 2.5 lbs.

if you can feel his ribs easily (but NOT see them when he moves, sits, etc) then he's at a good weight, and you're feeding him just fine! i assume his poops are OK now that you don't feed turkey anymore? :fingerscr

I think he looks very healthy and wouldnt' worry about his size, which will vary between individuals within the breed. If it helps any, I just met someone the other day who was telling me his mom has a 130 lb weim... my neighbor also has one that must be at or near 100 lb (he's quite tall).

Jag is looking really good and one very handsome boy. :lovestruck: I agree with TeriM and would supplement him with glucosamine/chondroitin or else green lipped mussel. :)
