  1. Our mini doxies mom weighs 8lbs dad weighs 9 lbs she gave birth to 6 puppies they all weighed 4 -5 oz except one who was like 3 oz and she passed immediately then the other smaller one passed 2 weeks later though she had gained to 4oz by feeding goat milk.
    My question is at vet they weighed 1.4 and 1.5 lbs at 6 weeks what will be normal weight for them ?

    • Mini Dachshunds weigh between 7 – 12 lbs
      Standard Dachshunds weigh between 13 lbs and up
      If mom and dad weigh no more than 9 lbs, then babies should come in or under this weight.
      Over feeding them however can cause harmful over weight. So be sure to follow your vets recommendations and not the weight chart on the labels of dog foods. These amounts are usually much higher than recommended for their health. Doxies especially need to keep weight off their backs to prevent injury.

  2. Dachshunds need to keep weight off of their backs because of the issues they have with them.Its best to keep them slim and in shape rather than too heavy.

    My little guy is actually a Tweenie ( in between the 13 – 25 lbs )

    Before you give your dog more food or change it,always check with your vet first. Friends mean well when they give you advise,but your Vet will give what in fact is best for your dog and the dogs size.

    Hope this helps!
