What Do I Feed My Underweight German Shepherd?

We get a lot of questions from German Shepherd owners about how to keep weight on their pups. Chronically skinny, underweight Shepherds can be heartbreaking for an owner who is desperate to put weight them.The most common questions we hear are: “My Shepherd is looking too skinny, why?" or "My shepherd is experiencing regular bouts of diarrhea and/or vomiting, why?" or "I’ve been feeding him more food than his recommended size and I still can’t get him to gain any weight.
