|My dog is what the vet refers to as "atheletic" and most people think she's way too skinny. The problem is we're used to seeing dogs who carry too much weight.
With that, I'd try adding in coconut oil to her diet. It's a good fat and will benefit her. Why would you want to feed a dog rice and other fillers just to gain weight? That's just as unhealthy as a human gaining weight on that kind of junk. Those are fillers, and meant to fill the dog up, but provide little to no nutritional value to your pup.
Nuts are high in fats, seeds are, coconut oil, ghee, natural things that put weight on in a healthy way is good. If you add all that stuff above to your dog's diet, they're going to have massive amounts of stool because almost all those ingredients are going to come right back out. Beef heart and liver are excellent suggestions. Stay away from carbs to put weight on.... worst idea ever --- for a human and an animal!
