Thank you for reaching out to us. You might want to consider increasing his amount of diet, changing a brand(high protein and fat), or mixing his diet with some toppers. If you roughly know his weight, you can easily search Google for the appropriate amount of diet compared to the weight of a dog. Significant loss of weight or a skinny outfit is usually caused by an insufficient amount of feeding or an underlying medical condition. You can also search BCS(body condition score) to evaluate his outfit by yourself at home. If he still shows an excessively skinny outfit even after an increase in the amount of diet, you should make an appointment with a vet for an examination. If you have any additional questions, please don’t hesitate to come back to us! Thank you.
