|Tigger is currently overweight due to her cancer medications, but her normal weight is just at eight pounds. She is petite, even for a Shih Tzu, and we did have some trouble keeping weight on.
Regarding weight gain, changing the type/amount of food can help greatly... if appetite is a problem, adding a spoonful (or more) of canned food can help. Finding some RAW/BARF items is not a bad idea at all.
Tigger enjoys raw, meaty bones (purchased from a butcher) mixed with raw veggies and fruits. Adding a bit of raw egg and rice would not be a bad idea either.
