He is ten pounds underweight. 21 pounds is light for 3 months. Have you tried feeding him RAW? I started feeding raw with my boy about two months ago and I can already see a difference in his coat, energy, and his muscles. There's tons of information about food here on these forums in the right section. Your pup definitely needs to put on some more weight. Maybe even a trip to the vet would be a good idea.

Do you have any pics?

Also, here is a growth chart you can use to monitor your pups weight.

What does your vet say about his weight? As for a new dog food, go to the store and ask them for the better stuff.

Basil was 3 months when I got she was 29 lbs...her weight is big big deal for me ...she was thin, her fur was not thick or shinning...but at 6 months she 57 lbs...and she is happy...

Did the vet test him for gerardia or parvo? how are his stools? How long has it been since he last ate? Is he active? My six month old pup got parvo, even after his booster shots... I would be at the vet sking a whole lot of questions...

can i try the can wet food for him not the dry food. and if yes what kind of can wet food should l feed him.
also is that ok to make his dry food and mix it with some beef or chiken and put it in the food processor to make it easy on him to eat. beaucse if i didn't mix or make in the food processor he will on pick the beef or the chiken and leave the dry food.

Have you tried to put some water into the food and let it sit for 10 minutes so it softens a little bit?

Yes, you can mix the food with chicken. What kind of food processor do you want to use?

is Royal Canin what you are feeding? its not cheap anyway, so their are other foods at that price point id consider much better. if you have a petco, they carry wellness..many people have liked the super 5 large breed puppy by wellness.

Innova makes a nice large breed puppy food (not sold at petsmart/petco).
