I have a stafford terrior and Iv had him for a year now but ever since I got him he seems to not be gaining any weight and no matter how much I feed him nothing works. In fact it seems that he is getting skinnier and it makes me sad to see him like that. What can I do to make him gain weight?Answer Question

i would take him to the vet and get his checked for worms, they will keep a dog from gaining weight because they steal all the nutrition out of the food, also make sure that you are feeding a high quality food, no dog chow, old roy, kibbles and bits....i recommend nutro, eukenuba, flint river(can only be bought from a rep, which i am lol www.Frrco.com/122889 ) or another high quality, you can go to www.dogfoodanalysis.com to compare how good a food is.

He could have intestinal parasites like tape worms that eat the food as fast as your dog does. Take a stool specimen in to the vet for a ck. They can tell you in a few mins. if your dogs has worms. He also could have other problems so have him cked out by a vet to be sure he is ok. Good luck, and I hope he gets better soon.
