Thank you for the suggestions I will check out the Leba III even if it is expensive it would be cheaper than a dental cleaning.

Took her to the vets and in one month on the dehydrated raw she has gained 1lb 7 ozs, not as much as I had hoped but I guess not too bad?

Star - that's a safe rate of weight gain I would assume.....and yes, raw can put it on, so I have had to be careful with Sunny. He is a mpoo, but I try to limit his food to 4 oz day of his current diet. The Leba spray was around $50 and it lasted 6 months.

I can't think about it much because it will get me frustrated and worried and he reads off of that so bad, and will AVOID food.

I have Vienna on a diet, and am trying to put weight on him. Vienna holds and gains weight on very little, and Vegas is active and eats little and loses weight.

Typical man and woman problems. =/
Kruz was a good 10lbs. lite when we got him and only sniff and nibbled the kibble then he started stealing the cat and ferrets food (raw) .So we now feed everyone raw and he also gets satin balls and he no longer misses a meal and has put on wieght but with the weight come the energy level too !
GOOD LUCK

I don't think I could handle more energy Poo lover, Lola is SO active now. Actually since she has put on weight she naps more especially after she eats. I will look into the satin balls thanks.
