|There are a few things you can try.
You can first switch to a food that is very high calorific. For example, if your dog eats a cup of food a day, you want to make sure he is getting the most calories in that one cup that he can. Calories can range a LOT, so I would check out Sedona's "good food for those on a budget" thread, where she lists the calories for each food by pound. Compare and pick a high one.
Satin balls are also known to work well. We did a version of them, we just got the fattiest ground beef, and fed that, along with some rice, scrambled eggs, and some plain cereal like flakes or cheerios. Give good treats like ones that have some good calories--like a ball of the raw meat, instead of a dinky low calories cookie.
You could also try feeding more meals throughout the day, she may eat less eat each, but 5 small meals can addup to more than 2 regular meals. And raw ground beef is usually a HUGE hit, so either do it like I did, or actually do that satin ball recipe. Good luck!
