I have a female english cocker spaniel,she has been with us for 6-7 years. I shifted to a new home 7 months ago and since then she has not been her usual self. She developed a bad case of mange which is clering up...she has lost weight and inspite of de-worming her she is not gaining weight.I am really concerned about her as she is like family. Any suggestions??
GinaH has posted a receipe for sick dogs that need to gain weight. I have not had to do it, but read that it really helps to put weight on and bring the dog back to health.

Divide into 10 one quart freezer bags and freeze. Thaw out as needed.
