When my guy got kennel cough he also lost a lot of weight even at 10 months old. I fed a mixture of coconut oil, Party Animal Cocolicious canned food (can buy on chewy.com) or at higher end pet stores usually, as well as pumpkin because he had diarrhea. I fed 3 cans a day in 3 meals and its slow going but it helped. I would also suggest switching from Blue Buffalo. They've had numerous recalls. You should check out dog food advisor and check their list of 4 or 5 star dog foods. They're more expensive but you usually feed less because the quality is better.
