Question:

: my JRT puppy is 3 months old, but she's only 1.4 kg, is it too thinner?

Hi,
I wish we could help you but we can't. A dogs weight will vary according to how the dogs is built, the amount of bone, structure, etc. One thing to remember is that you never want to see the ribs in a puppy or an adult dog for that matter. I do however want to be able to feel them and but weight is a horse of a different color. Please ask your Vet what he thinks and then adjust the food intake according.
Sorry I can't be of more help but this is one of those questions that can't be answered without seeing the dog/puppy.
Have a great day
Linda
