I have a 4 month old English sheepdog (I've had her 2 weeks

Hi, I have a 4 month old English sheepdog (I've had her 2 weeks from a private seller, who had her at 8 weeks). Her behaviour is beautiful except when eating. She sits and goes to her bowl on command, but collects small mouthfulls and moves away from bowl to chew. Then she makes a strange hiccup noise (like a throaty burp). We have raised bowls to minimise the air she swallows. Her feeding time is quiet and uneventful, but after a few mouthfulls she's lost interest. She's not eating enough and is loosing weight. She was recently treated with milpro for tapeworm (her mother had them and previous owner had not treated). Lots of diarrhea since, one large tapeworm passed and many 100s of eggs. Due another treatment in 2.5 weeks.She's happy and energetic, but 18kg and eating only 200g daily of puppy James beloved turkey and rice since milpro given. She was eating 560g per day over 3 meals.Could she just be teething, or is there something gastrointestinal going on?Sorry for the ramble and hope this all makes some senseJA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if James will be able to digest that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about James?Customer: Her name is ***** ***** food is called puppy James beloved. It was recommended by the vet, but she was weaned on raw minced beef. The previous owners said that they had fed her on this dry food. Her diarrhea colour was brown and extremely runny but now she has yellow and bubbly, with no solid mass
