Dog with Hernia & Lack of Appetite

Can I please have some remedy recommendations:

German Shepherd pup
Thin, boney
Suppressed appetite - likes chicken wings & necks but seems to have no appetite for anything else
Abdominal hernia, navel, only 15 weeks old

Thanks!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
is the dog passing stool normally.

I don't think long chicken bones are ok for dogs-when broken they have sharp ends that can pierce intestines (I'm not sure about wings though, but sure about drumstics).

Was he diagnosed by vet?
since when he has no apppetite?

The vet says he is healthy despite being a little underweight and for the hernia (suggested surgical removal at desexing time). I have little faith in this vet as he seems too skinny to me.

He likes dry food and seems interested in it.

Chicken necks and wings are raw, and quite safe.

Stools are normal and passing normally.

He was fed with his litter around a big bowl all together (not a way I think is good), so since new owners have had him he hasn't had a big appetite but we assume he may have always been like that (pushed out from the big feed bowl by his littermates perhaps and 'learnt' to eat only small amounts?)

I am leaning towards Alumina (lack of appetite, hernia, dryness, thin, undernourished looking, etc.)????
