Few questions

Thanks in advance for any advice
I dewormed my puppy about a week ago he's still a little skinny. I made another post but all I got was "you shouldn't have a puppy if you can't afford the vet" lol that's bs..
Anyway I'm not rich and don't got money for the vet right now. He's very active alert eats well. I gave him parvo shots already his 3rd one is going to be in 2 weeks. I feed him adult food cause I have 2 other dogs... Can he be skinny because its not puppy food ? We use pedigree today I'm thinking of going and getting a small bag of activa puppy food hopefully that helps a little . someone told me to get another wormer that maybe I didn't get all the worms.. If I deworm again if wouldnt harm him right ? I do plan on taking him to vet as soon as I can . he's not sick or anything just worried about his weight. He's 3 months old and weighs 15 lbs .

Does his right leg curve out like that all of the time? It looks like he's starting to knuckle over.
You should stick to ground work with small pups. Once he hits about 18 months he can start the jumping and hanging. It's very hard on joints and bones that aren't fully developed.
If he's been wormed you should be able to up his food intake and see him start putting weight on.

Thank you for the reply, and I first noticed that a couple of weeks after I got him when I took this picture
I just looked at it And I notice it and I feel a bone when I touch it in the front is this bad ?

He's just knuckling over. You'll need a lower protein kibble and no high impact exercise. Keep him on soft surfaces like carpet and grass.
If you use the search function at the top of the page and search knuckling, you'll find threads that go more in depth on how to correct it. It's not permanent in pups and fixes fairly quickly. But if it's not dealt with, it can cause serious issues in adulthood.

Both of my pups knuckled worse than yours is and the recipe in the knuckling over thread worked literally within a day or two. Having him on adult food is beneficial as well because it's typically lower in protein than puppy food and what my vet recommended right from the get go.

I had mine to the vet today for another round of shots. They are 13 weeks and weigh 15.5 and 17.5 lbs each and my vet is very happy with their size and condition so your pups weight isn't too far off though I do think another another round or two of dewormer is needed.

I didn't mean any offense about the vet and not having puppies if you can't afford the vet but if you can't afford routine care what will you do if, God forbid, something bad happens? That's all I meant. I do understand funds being tight and will help if I ever can with any problems or questions you have. I do wish you luck with your pup!

What dog foods do you recommend that aren't too pricy

I've heard Merrick is a pretty good company. It may be a little high in the protein you might need but it's fairly priced. You can get it around $55 depending what size bag you buy. Taste of the Wild(TOTW) is recommended by many also and fairly priced as well. I feed my dog Orijen and that's killing me at over $80 a bag.

Taste of the Wild is the food used in the thread about knuckling. I'll see if I can dig up the thread and post a link. It's a fairly inexpensive food. You can get it on Chewy.com pretty cheap and most Ace Hardwares carry it.

Here's the link. https://www.gopitbull.com/health-nutr...ling-over.html

I saw the recipe but I ended up getting nutro max .. Seems like a decent food I saw some good reviews about it. I'm going out of town for a week hopefully the knuckling doesn't progress... When I get back I will start him on the knuckling recipe thanks everyone
