4 days ago my puppy chewed on one of my daughters dads antibiotics and you could see he wasnt right, he didnt eat or drink all that day and night and then the next day he was starting to get better, he ate 3 meals that day and drank heaps of water, he had a run down the creek and was fine but then the next day he wouldnt eat the food I gave him, usually he eats raw meat the same as my cat but his tummy doesnt seem to agree with it all the time so I change it up and I'm still trying to fine food he really likes (other than my dinner meat) he is still eating and drinking but not as much as he should and he looks a bit skinny, can anyone help, what should I try feeding him to help put weight on him, he is an 8 month old Mini Foxy x Jack Russell and I just adore him, please helpc

He needs to see the vet. The sooner the better. Some medications are toxic to dogs in large quantities. Some are toxic in any quantity.

Agreed, Trip to the Vet with the Prescription bottle of what he ate.

Is his tail normally tucked and down? If not, then that can be a sign he isn't feeling well. His body posture is a little hunched which could indicate he has some pain or not feeling well.

Terriers tend to be lean. He isnt' skinny at this point and looks to be in good condition.
After the Vet visit, try feeding raw chicken breast? Try a few grams of cubed chicken breast to see if he will eat. If his stomach or bowels are upset, you could try offering white rice (cooked in chicken broth) and a bit of steamed shredded chicken breast.
