Sorry but there is nothing healthy about any Purina feed.
This is a good site to start your research on a "healthier" puppy kibble. http://www.dogfoodadvisor.com/best-d...t-puppy-foods/

Did your vet recommend something like science diet or purina?

And to the OP - your puppy looks fine weight-wise. I'd switch to something better than Eukanuba, but I can't see anything wrong with his weight in the pictures you posted.

|Nikitta||Many times puppies get to much protein from puppy food. With larger breeds, you need to be careful to not overprotein feed them. If they grow to fast, it can be bad. I was in tears when my vet told me I was doing that to Xerxes as a puppy. I asked," Did I ruin my puppy?" He said," No. You just need to stop over the top overfeeding nutrients." I backed off to adult food, and he recovered fine. So much is tied up in advertisement.They say," oh this is good. Oh, that is good, for your puppies. It sounds like you are good concerned owners. I hope you have a good German Shepherd aware vet as I do.|

We also use the natural balance loaf cut up small for training. So he is getting more than just the dry kibble throughout the day. My puppy is 4 months old and weighs about 41 pounds.

He did get checked by the vet and was cleared for everything. I am feeding him Eukanuba Large Breed Puppy Food and this is the same food he was being fed when I got him. Should I be feeding him a different brand?

Has he been checked for worms or other physical problems that could cause him not to absorb all the nutrients?
What food are you feeding him? A dog can eat 7-8 cups of a lower quality food while a high quality food will satisfy them with 2-3 cups. It's not just about quantity, it's quality as well
