    Yeah Gracie! So happy all is well! She is a trooper and she will fight to stay with her mama and family!!! As far as putting weight on I only had exp with Pitbull. We had a rescue for 2 months and we used pedisure/boost and supplements for healthy weight gain. If you try a petstore they should have protein shakes/pills you can give! Im not sure if the EBD could tolerate it. Thanks for the update and for taking such good care of your babies! You should be very proud for all you do!

    I am sooooooo glad Gracie is doing so well! If Caleb can handle eggs, cheese, & cottage cheese that will put weight on. Get ready for some room clearing gas!

    Ok maybe I spoke too soon. Gracie threw up her dehydrated raw...She digested the kibble but not the raw. Now for supper she ate the kibble but not the raw..Who knows.

    When Bella was undiagnosed I just fed her as often as possible and mixed a good grainfree canned in. Of course I was fighting an uphill battle. I would see what the test scores tell you. Then take it from there. If the results are negative for any issues, then maybe increase his calories.

    Always with me

    Glad to hear Gracie is getting back to her normal self!

    Some dogs just don't do well with raw oddly enough. We had to switch Bre back to kibble from raw because it was giving her digestion issues. As for the weight gain...we've used peanut butter and cheese tossed in with the food but that was with labs and american bulldog fosters...not sure if an EB would tolerate that much extra fat? Good luck!
