GSD not gaining weight

My 5 month old German puppy has been losing weight. I noticed a while ago she was so I started feeding her more. A couple weeks ago I stared feeding her 4 cups a day, which I know is over feeding for her age, but she still isn’t gaining weight and she’s in a cage most of her day due to both me and my husband work. Please help

The first thing would be to rule out any health issues. I would suggest to take her to your vet and also take a sample of her poop (just 1 tsp. - use a plastic spoon and put that in a baggie).

These older threads have some suggestions:
