    Fat puppies are not healthy pups IMO. Too much weight can put a lot of stree on growing bones and joints. If your vet said already that he looked fine, I wouldn't be trying to put weight on him. pups go through many growth spurts, some where they will look gangly, gawky, sort of like a goofy teenager. That is normal.

    From the pict on your avatar he looks fine.
    Post better picts when you get a chance.

    Luna is 20 weeks old and currently weighs 36.9 lbs. I can still see ribs but the vet says she's the perfect weight for her age. We have been reviewing the raw diet and plan on starting it as soon as we can find a reputable butcher. As other have said, your pup looks to be a good weight.

  4. Just had our 16 wk old in to the vet today, and only 22.8 lbs... I too was worried because she's never had 'baby fat', but the vet (for the second time in a month) has drilled it into my head... APBT are a lean dog, and unhealthy if 'cushy'... nicer to cuddle with, but very hard on their health. We're watching closely for our 25 lb mark so we can spay (vets rules) then she should pick up weight easier. :;crossing fingers::

    Keep in mind that this thread is almost 6 years old. The OP doesn't visit the forum any longer.

    Please don't give advice such as this. Gorilla Max (a Bully Max product) is a filler scam product. Bully Max doesn't even use their own dogs in their advertisements. They steal pics from the Internet.

    Kibble is balanced by itself. Throwing random pieces of meat throws off the balance and the dog could end up with a calcium deficiency.
