    Hi all,
    My puppy is 14 weeks tomorrow she weighs 9.3kg today. The veterinary nurse says she needs to gain a little more weight, I tried to increase her meals by 20g so an extra 60g a day but this upset her tummy. She was around 6kg when I got her at 10 weeks so is gaining weight. Does anyone have any advice on this topic for me?

    Do you think she needs to gain weight? What does she look/feel like. Often people are so used to seeing overweight labradors that it becomes the norm. If you are happy with her weight, and she is gaining weight steadily, then i wouldn't be too concerned.
    One thing I would say, is to make sure that what you are feeding her is the best quality. You can then get more goodness into her with less volume.
