Puppy age: weeks or months?

    Silly question, when you translate weeks to months, it doesn't mesh with the calendar months. My pup was born on Sunday Sept 1, so every Sunday I was saying how many weeks old she is. This Sunday the 19th, she will be 20 weeks, which at 4 weeks per month means she would be 5 months on the 19th. Or should I say she's 5 months on Feb 1st? Should I start now calling her months-old instead of weeks-old? :pullhair:

    Every 1st of the month, he is 1 month older, regardless of how many days/weeks are in the month.

    Edit: I consider 16 wks the cut-off, due to most vet's shot schedule, then it goes to months.

    That's about how I do it too and after that I go to the date they were born for each month.

    OK. I'd just got into the weeks old thing for vaccines and kept going, chalking up another week and realized my months-old thing was getting way screwed up!

    I'm so glad someone finally asked about this. I wondered the same thing for awhile. I kept up with it as weeks until she was 6 months but when someone asked I always told them in months. I can't believe my girl will be 8 months on the 25th

    I’m the anal weirdo that kept track of both until 6 months. :anonymous :

    I was going to call it quits at 6 months, but couldn't decide if that would be Feb 16 or Mar 1st. :rofl:
