Is My Puppy Underweight?

I'm Not Underweight - I'm Just Right!
We have a three month old English cocker spaniel which only weighs four kilos, is she underweight for her age?

It sounds like your puppy could be a little underweight for her age, however, all puppies are different.
As a general guide, a cocker puppy of her age should be around 5-6 kgs, however, as I said, all puppies are different, and girls are generally smaller than boys.
If your puppy is happy, healthy, energetic, and eating what you put down for her, and you've checked for worms in her stool (and it's clear), I wouldn't worry about it.
Why not read this article about Cocker Spaniel weight to put your mind at rest. However, if you're really concerned about your puppy's weight, I recommend you take her to see your vet and get him to confirm one way or the other - I'm sure you'll feel much better then.
Good luck and let us know how you both get on.
