My 2 month old GSD is an incredible addition to my family
My question is for food, he just had his shots and isn't eating much of it anymore, should I be worried?
Also, I would like to know what are the best brands for him. Right now I am giving him canidae life stages. For his treats I have wellness puppy treats. I want my GSD to be healthy and strong. Any recommendations?

I have a 2 month old as well. She wasn't eating much either until this week. After she adjusted to new home etc. She still doesn't finish her food. I add canidae canned mackerel salmon and drop of Greek yogurt. I've been switching it up for toppers as long as she can handle it stool wise. Add a tiny bit lukewarm water. Canidae good food. I feed solid gold puppy
She's quite picky.

I'm concerned about the grain vs grain free diet. I don't want him to develop allergies. Also, he isn't eating his treats at all.

Does he seem ok otherwise. If there is any concern I would take him to the vet. You also might look on the puppy food section of the website. Ken did a great spreadsheet that lists different foods that are good for puppies.

I found out that he had an infestation of worms. He has tapeworms and roundworms. He got dewormed but not for the tapeworms, this required drontal. He recently pooped most of them ( i hope ) out. There were so many of them, it looked gross. He is eating ID for now. Didn't finish his half a can but he mostly finished it. about 2-3 tablespoons left on the first half of can
