|I agree with Saya and Maxwell.
Try feeding a little bit more if she starts to lose weight. i constantly monitored mr B's weight when i changed his diet.
When i first put Jake on raw at the beginning of last year he dropped weight dramatically over the coruse of two weeks. He should have only needed 9-11 oz a day. Turns out becuase of our energy level and that amount of activity Mr. B gets he needed more along 14-16oz total of mixture meat/organ/bone a day.
I ended up just buying chicken quarters and liver and stuffing the liver under the chicken quarter skin and freezing it. It would take jake between 15-30 minutes to chew down a chicken quarter if it was frozen or semi thawed. Eventually he just got a whole fryer chicken (~7-9lbs) over the course of 5 days with the skin remove and cavity stuffed with ground beef/ liver mixture.
When he got the luxury of only ground beef or chicken he'd eat in less then 5 minutes unless it was served frozen.
You could try Kong stuffing her meals if you want to prolong them. that worked well for jake when it was ground meats served fresh/thawed.
I also do one a day feedings. Jake had a few bile episodes in the beginning when we went to one day. I found that giving him a treat at night ~ 2oz of meat or peanut butter made the bile stop and he got through the night. Sometimes i'd let him have some fruit, veggies or a carb like rice too if i had some left over from dinner.
