Hopefully LS will be back on the forum soon and can give you some advice! She took in Bella, who was underweight and had her looking like a happy healthy dog in no time!

I did not mean to discourage you from raw. I just meant maybe less fatty cuts of raw. I think most recommend chicken with bone in to start. I second the recommendation for frequent small meals. I know raw is so much more digestible than kibble. Can you post her picture? I would love to see her.

Oh no, you didn't. I think raw is the best way to go. I just realized that puppy food has a pretty high fat content. Might be a safe way to get the oz. on her quickly.

I will try the small and frequent meals though. It might not always be possible with my schedule, is the problem.

We all do the bet we can given our schedules. . You have to look at it this way, she is so much better off with you. The details will work themselves out.
