|The others gave good advice...he is already fattening up, so just give him some time and he should gradually get to a normal weight. There are some extras you can add though to help him, if he doesn`t have a problem with eating them:
`Satin Balls` are probably the best known supplement, which a lot of rescues use. You have to make them yourself, but it doesn`t really involve much cooking and you can freeze them in large batches. For a puppy, you can just give a few a day as a treat, but they are also a great supplement and add to the coat, etc. Don`t overfeed, they can put weight on FAST!! Here`s a link to the recipe if you are interested (I cut the recipe in half usually):
If you don`t want to do that, you can continue adding various quality protein sources to his food. Things like cottage cheese, egg, a bit of tinned fish, healthy meat scraps, etc. are all fine, assuming you feed things in moderation of course. I know this is my personal opinion, but I would ditch the Pedigree treats...they are pretty nasty..mostly corn, animal by-products and chemicals. Yucko!
