Hi, I was wondering if someone could help me. I took Lexi to the vet yesterday and when the weighed her she was 4.0 pounds. Does this seem right? On April 12 she weighed 2.5 pounds at 11 weeks old. I weighed her again at the end of April and she was 2.6 pounds. That means she gain like 1.5 pounds in a little over 4 weeks.

I really don't care how much she ends up weighing as long as she is healthy. I was just suprised that she had gained that much weight.
