You can add this code to functions.php in your theme folder

Code:
<?php $thumb_url = get_the_post_thumbnail_url();
	  $thumb_low = strtolower($thumb_url);
	  if (strpos($thumb_low, '.gif') === false) {
	  	$thumb_size = 'large';
	  } else {
	  	$thumb_size = 'full';
	  } ?>
Normally, Wordpress will process your featured images via this function the_post_thumbnail() and it will resize your image to 150x150 thus your gif image will not work. Now when you added that function then it will always display your image size as uploaded.

Hope that helped.
