Hello, everyone! I wrote a few months earlier because my Leo was small for his age (3 lbs at 10 weeks). At eighteen weeks, Leo is now 7.8 lbs. I've seen some calculators for age and weight and different formulas, but you guys are cavalier experts! How much do you think Leo will end up weighing? If it helps, he came from a litter of five.

Probably about twice the weight he is now. Sounds like he is catching up. :) But it is absolutely impossible to give you anything other than a very rough estimate. he could be less, he could end up 25lbs. Depends on average size of several generations on both sides and the genes he was dealt.

Thanks, Karlin. Leo's mom is about 18 lbs and his dad is 16 lbs, so I'm guessing he will weight somewhere between the two. I just wanted to see if anyone else had a cavy who weighed a similar amount at Leo's age and how he or she turned out!
