    Your vet must be weighing in kilos, 11.3 lbs would be a very small full grown cavalier.

    Guinness weighs 13 lbs (about 6 kilos), but he's only 10 months and still has some growing to do.

    My girl is really petite, she's 10lbs now. She is 1 year, 3 months old. Not sure if she will get much bigger, she's been around the same weight for about 3 months now. Her parents are both of normal cavalier weight (16 &18lbs if I remember correctly). She was the smallest in the litter. Her siblings are all around the 14-15lb range.

    Cassie is 4.5 kilos at 19 weeks, Barney is around 12.5 kilos.

    Please don't go by the charts as Cavaliers vary a lot in size. Barney is on the taller end of the scale, if I went by the charts he'd be like a rake!!

    You should see a waist and be able to feel the spine and rib cage without the protruding.

    Having said this a recent study says that dogs at the lighter range or "normal" weight are living longer.

    Yes I agree... every Cavalier is different.

    As long as there is a visible waist and you can easily feel the ribs and spine they are fine!!
    Ruby weighs 10.2 kg- she has lost some weight and although Id like to get her just under 10 kg for the summer for her own sake she certainly looks good!
    Charlie on the other hand is only 7kg- he is visibley thin and I would like to get some weight on him still but the fact that he isnt gaining to me says he isnt ready yet and ive stopped obsessing about it now. He will gain in his own time im sure!!

    The standard for a Cavalier is 12 - 18lb.

    Dylan is 7.20 kilo. Poppy is 10.5 kilo, she is very heavy but not at all fat.

    I agree-It really does vary! My girl is small at 10 pounds but she's always been petite. She is the perfect weight for her frame, she still has a little filling out to do.

    Jasper is now 9.2 kilo, the heaviest he has ever been, he is now 10 yrs old, I have noticed over the last two winters he puts on weight and then loses it in the summer when we are out for more walks in the good weather, I have always been very careful with his food intake, but I guess as they get older and less active it`s easy to put the weight on. He has quite a height to him compared to some cavaliers so does not look over big.
