My little chocolate male seems to stay skinny. He has been bigger so I know he should be but he runs nonstop and burn alot of calories and doesn't seem eat more than the rest of my lazy ones. Anyways, I usually mix in fresh cooked rice for him to up his caloric intake but I was wondering if there is a better and easier carb to help him put on weight
There are high performance dog foods for dogs that burn a lot of energy. There are several threads here about the different dog foods. You can search back through the older posts if you don't get an answer right away to your question. How old is your dog? What breed?

I had the same problem with one of my dogs. I added brown rice because it's a healthier carb source than white rice. Oatmeal is good for dogs too and healthy. I have also added cottage cheese. Also add more food than the recommended amount on the dog food label. It worked for me. My dog was so bad off she looked abused.
All my dog free feed and I feed them high quality food. I have tried cottage cheese and rice, but maybe I'll try oatmeal. Hes not at all sick or anything just skinny. I'm not concerned just like other peoples input.
And giving him one of my fox carcasses wouldn't help much either considering all my foxes are malnutritioned and there ain't much to eat. lol
I know what you mean fox. My dog runs and plays every chance she gets. She is always on the go. She looked abused there for a while until I started feeding more and supplementing. She wasn't sick either just active.
Foxfur, you let your foxes that you rip the fur off of get malnourished? You "lol" at this, and it's not funny in the least. What is wrong with you? Do you really abuse animals or are you just out trolling?
By the way, why don't you just go to some animal hating forum that you can discuss your obsession with fur and hunting with other freakos.
