What are the recommended weight standards for labrador puppies?

My lab puppy is 10 weeks old.


Answer by  ofnik (409)

This is not an accurate weight, there are variations in weight but around 10 weeks he is supposed to weigh around 5 Kg. Around week 17, he supposed already to have 10 Kg. You should track the gain of weight when going to the vet for vaccines and follow ups.

At 10 weeks your puppy should weight between 7 and 12 pounds. If it's a bit more, its ok, however if it's less, i wouldn't buy it.

Weights of puppies vary greatly depending on how big the parents were and the growth rate of the individual puppy. As long as the puppy looks healthy and is eating well you shouldn't be concerned.

My lab pup weighs 19 lbs at 4 months. He's really lean but tall. He suffered from hook worm and round worms when we bought/adopted him from the humane society back in Dec. 2011. At that time he was 4.2 lbs. So in 3 months he gained 15 lbs.

There are no recommended weight standards for lab puppies. Puppies grow at different weights and a lot also depends on their build. One puppy might be long and lean, while another might be really thick and stocky.

There really isn't one it really all depends on the individual puppy. If it is the runt it will weigh less if not it will weigh more.

I think your labrador should be about 10-20 kg by now. Any more or less may be okay. They actually have different growth rates so you should not be too worried.
