Getting a Dog to Gain Weight?

We got Harly a few months ago. His owner could not keep him because of a move. We have tried everything to put weight on him. He is papered. His hair seems to be very dry and he has dandruff. He is a house dog and we have 2 acres for him to run in. He chews everything. We need advice on what to feed him.

He has a food allergy. The dandruff and lack of weight gain are signs of this. You need to try different non-allergenic foods on him. Try each for at least two weeks. With some dogs it's wheat and with some it's soy. Some are allergic to chicken. I knew a dog that was allergic to beef, but that's rarer. Good luck.

Suggest also taking your dog to your vet, to be sure there are not other problems that may need treatment.

Puppy tin food and dry food, is good as its got everything your dog needs, and also supposed to alot of fat in it, also try sashes choice and put it in her food it's good for her skin and I feed it to my female dog who had a litter of pups 4 weeks ago, alot of people have be saying that she's in pretty good condition as the pups just drain her and take all the goodness out of her. Hope this helps your dog back to her healthy self...
