We bought Kaiser from a breeder when he was six weeks old.
We knew that he was the smallest out of his litter, but his parents were both nice big good looking GSD dogs. What we didn't know was that the whole litter was tiny for GSDs.
When we brought him home he weighed even less than what we were told, he was only 1.2 kg. Needless to say we were very disappointed and to make matters worse he refused to eat for a couple of days. Here is his progression so far:
6 weeks 1.2kg
7 weeks 1.9kg
8 weeks 2.5kg
9 weeks 3.2kg
10 weeks 4.6kg
Now 11 weeks 5.4kg
He is so tiny compared to other GSDs his age. Will he ever reach the proper breed size?
I used the dog food calculator
on this website and he is undereating. He is maybe eating 2/3 of what the minimum says and he simply won't eat any more.
I have him on Royal Canin GSD puppy food and supplement with chicken necks because the vet said his bones are weak.
