Thyroid? I'd ask the vet if it might have anything to do with a thyroid problem, which I would doubt, if your pup is so young, but maybe.

https://pets.thenest.com/poodles-los...mon%20symptom.

Alopecia
Miniature poodles are prone to developing growth hormone-responsive alopecia. This condition is characterized by symmetrical fur loss. It mainly affects male miniature poodles and begins around puberty. Your vet can diagnose alopecia based on a visual exam, although she may wish to perform skin scrapings and biopsies to rule out related conditions such as hypothyroidism, of which hair loss is a common symptom. This condition does not affect the health of your dog, just his appearance and your vet will typically elect not to treat the condition, preferring to let your dog’s hormones reach a natural balance once puberty is finished.

I threw away the bag, but I believe it was Royal Canin.

I was wondering about thyroid issues too. Since I posted my question, our puppy's fecal sample came back positive for giardia. The vet said that would explain his inability to gain weight, but said hair loss isn't a symptom of giardia. She said it's possible the stress on his body because of the giardia was causing his hair loss, but can't say for sure.
