10 month old amstaff losing weight

Hi my 10 month old female amstaff is losing weight and she ears the same amount as my 4 yo American bulldog they both have dry food aznd she also has skin allergies. Does anybody know what i can do to fix both issues, i am thinking about maybe changing her food and give her more wet food and also feed her more than my 4 yo bulldog he is at a perfect weight at about 60kgs but my amstaff is only about 15 to 20 kgs,
Can anybody have any suggestions

Have a Vet check her out, for possible parasites. If she is healthy, since every dog is an individual including their metabolism rates, she may just need a higher caloric intake than your other dog.

I think Laco is right, you need to see a vet. There are lots of reasons why she lose weight and only vet can surely answer that.

Your vet will able to determine the cause of the allergies as to whether they are food related or not. Then you'll know if changing her food will fix both issues or not. I agree with the above,& my first guess would be worms if she's eating & not gaining, but also puppies require more of some things because they are growing, so she'll need "puppy" biscuits & often more protein etc. Those types of dogs do tend to do well with some chunks of raw red meat as they usually dont suffer from sensitive stomachs, however two dogs I know of have been put on cooked chicken & rice by their vet due to allergies to red meat. One a pitbull cross, so best to get a pro to check first. They look like really beautiful dogs by the way!!!!
