What kind of scale was used at the vet's office? I know that sounds like a stupid question, but electronic scales sometimes are unable to weigh smaller animals accurately. They can be affected by a fingertip of pressure on the table or by movement of the puppy. According to my vet, the best way to weigh smaller animals is using a baby scale (yes the kind used for human babies!). That's what they always use to weigh my pup...and they wait at least 30 seconds for the scale to calibrate. One other thought...did your vet use the same scale each time? It might be that the scales are a bit off.
