|Just my opinion, and may not help, BUT... it seems like you have gone thru a tremendous variety and brands of food for a dog that you have had less than three weeks.
Most dogs need to properly develop the digestive enzymes for complete digestion of a certain food and that usually takes 3 to 4 weeks at the minimum.
When I change a dog's food I make ONLY one change a month. That gives the dogs system time to fully utilize the food and adjust to it. I also start with a very small amount per meal, also to help them adjust to changes.
From what I am reading on here you have been giving her an awful lot of food AND an awful lot of different types and brands in a very short time. She didn't get too thin overnight and it is also critically important to not expect her to be gaining her normal weight back too soon. It is a very common mistake to feed a thin dog too much too fast and they ultimately end up getting sick from it. A better idea is to pick a well balanced food and feed her slightly less than a "normal" amount UNTIL she adjusts to it, the slowly increase the amount she can tolerate after 3 or 4 weeks of bing on that food.
