Puppy Wolf Dog

I have a 8 week old wolf dog. We have dewormed her about 2 weeks ago, but I see that her sides are still thin. Looks like she isnt getting enough food, but she is eating a lot. Is it to soon to deworm her again? Or is there maybe something else wrong with her?

Do not be in a hurry to let large breed puppies grow or become fat, this only creates problems with the bones and joints. If he is eating well and growing steadily, that is all that is necessary. You definitely do not want a fat puppy, that is extremely unhealthy.
