What should you do if your Pitbull is growing too fast?

If your Pitbull seems to be growing too fast for your comfort, you shouldn’t hesitate to raise this concern with your vet. You can try to decrease the amount of food you serve during meals.

An indicator of overfeeding is consistently soft stools. In young puppies, overfeeding is more harmful than underfeeding.


How can you tell how big a pitbull puppy will get?

As a general rule, American Pitbull Terriers are fully grown by a year old. At 4 months, he will be about half of his adult height. And at 6 months, he will be around 2 thirds of his adult weight. 2 to 6 months is when your Pitbull puppy will grow the fastest.

At what age are pitbulls full size?

To calculate their adult weight, there are two methods you can use: Divide their weight at 20 weeks by their current age in weeks and multiply by 52. So for a puppy who weighs 35 pounds at 20 weeks: 35÷20=1.75, 1.75×52=91 pounds. Simply double their weight at 6 months of age.
