You can continue to feed the dog food without any problems. But, could you also serve curd as it's very good digestion. Could you also make sure the puppy is regularly dewormed.

Hi Shadow, if you visit a vet, he'll make a deworming schedule for him. He needs deworming monthly till 9 month of age. You have given puppy dp to him, so the vet should have discussed this with you. Don't mix curd with anything, just feed it plain. But make sure, it's in room temperature. Try to switch the food brand from Pedigree to Canobites.

royal canine is good - it has different level as per breed and age - upgrade as per schedule
are you giving calcium supplements ? this breeds grow rapidly and so may need supplements
do not force any exercise like running or jumping till the pup is more then 1 yr
walk is fine
consult with local vet aswell

Regarding Royal Canin, i was studying about the product comparison with other brands.

First 5 ingredients, there is only 1 meat, it's named but after that it is rice, rice, oatmeal and soy... Yuck. You are spending crazy amounts of money on crap.Soy is a common allergen and there's a lot of rice in there.

While they suggest that
Corn –

Is a highly digestible source of energy. Moreover, studies have shown that corn is rarely allergenic for pets. (laugable)

Corn gluten meal –

Is protein extracted from the germ of a grain of corn. It is a high quality source of digestible protein (protein digestibility over 85%). (what a joke)

LOL...

Euko is much better than RC contentwise

Hi Anil, having fed my dog Canobites for 7 months now, what we've noticed is though he weighs fine as per his age, he tends to be leaner unlike some Labs who tends to look heavy weight. Having spoken to some vets including the local one, who has practiced even in the UK, any Lab who's under a year old and weights more than 35 kg is and 'unhealthy Labrador' and is likely to suffer health problems when adult. I know you'll talk about the weight of the parents, foreign pedigree, etc etc, but according to my local vet who's practised in Wales for 7 years asserts the quality of Labradors, breed wise, has deteriorated across the world including in America where they originated, and breeders, in pursuit of making this breed more showy, have made them prone to several genetic disorders- the worst of them-even a begineer will be aware of-hips dysplasis. He even said these unhealthy Labs ( as he defined above ) has average life expectany of just 7 year.

well good bred labs should be around 35 kgs. they are gun dogs, needs to run in swamps etc. unfortunately we see heavy build labs a lot weighing 45kg odd. since labs gain weight faster, they sud be kept in check for gain. heavier the body than 35 kg more prone to health issues. now a days labs r mostly bred for just show..not for purpose they were made. show the pups n get them back in the crate...

Also, just forgot to mention another point of another vet, those who originally bred Labs in America had never intended the dog to be so heavy weight as their main job was to bring back the fishing nets and fishes fell off the nets to the river banks. How can we expect a 50 kg Labrador to do this job swiftly with the same precison as his ancestors in 19th century? He laughed saying these overweight labs can't even walk properly.
Anil, could you please help as the breeders I've rasied this with were either mummed or had their own stories.

LABRADOR RETRIEVER
Weight Standards: m - 60 to 75 lbs., f - 55 to 70 lbs.
Height Standards: m - 22.5 to 24.5 inches, f - 21.5 to 23.5 inches
Coat: short, straight, hard, and dense; in black, yellow, or chocolate
Common Ailments: hip dysplasia, hot spots

The Labrador Retriever originated in Newfoundland and further developed in England. Besides being a famous gun dog, the Lab has become a renowned police and war dog and a trusted guide dog for the blind. The Labrador Retriever is also only one of the few breeds known to produce an oil through the pores of the skin. It will develop a very dry and brittle coat in a very short period of time when the entire Linoleic acid group is not present in its daily diet. The Linoleic acid group consist of three fatty acids: Oleic, Linolenic and Linoleic. The best commercial sources of these fatty acids for the Labrador Retriever are fish oil, linseed oil, or cold pressed wheat germ oil.

In Newfoundland the primary food sources were caribou, fish, and whale fats. In England the food sources were poultry, fish, wheat, and dairy products. The combined effect of foods from these two areas resulted in the development of a breed requiring a diet low in carbohydrates yet high in fats. The source of the fat is also important; the Labrador Retriever has a difficult time assimilating beef fat but thrives on poultry fat, fish oil, or vegetable fats.

For the Labrador Retriever recommended foods are that contain fish, poultry, lamb, and green vegetables. However, for this breed its suggested you avoid foods that are a blend of beef, beets, corn, and soy.
