if you can go by a drugstore and get some pyrantel pamoate (it will be in w the children's pinworm treatment) he would need a dose of +/- 275 mg for his weight. Whether it seems he has parasites or not, per fecal, he likely does have a load as most dogs have a load.
I'm not suggesting it would make him underweight to have a low parasite load but I'm suggesting it won't hurt to deworm him twice a year in this way, just because he is a dog.
Where I see him as underweight is at his tailset/hip bone and I think he needs about 5 pounds. Watch that area for protruding bone. Maybe add some good fats rather than more volume of food, like some fish oil. OR you can get a tub of Super 14 from the feed store (it'll be in the horse section) and add that to his food- it's very high calorie/low volume.
