Ruby had her first visit with our Vet this morning and she's doing well. Weighed in at 21lbs 3oz! Holy smokes! She's just 11 wks old! She had a shot and she's sleeping peacefully at my feet as I type. The office gave me her 1st heartworm tab for free and they sold me just one dose of flea control because her weight will be changing so much in the next month...it would be silly to buy a 3m treatment pack. I asked about spaying and they won't do the surgery until she is 6 months old. I actually scheduled Ruby's next check-up with the surgeon so I can talk to her about spaying. So, all in all, a good appointment. The Vet did recommend I feed Ruby three times a day still and only about 1/3 of a cup at each feeding. I was doing two- 1 cup meals because I thought that was enough. Guess I'll have to read up on that.
