Reply To: Won't gain weight

TBs generally have that problem, unfortunately. When my Morgan, who was normally a chubby boy, lost a lot of weight after a bad tooth float, I started him on beet pulp with rice bran pellets in it, and that did the trick without making him hotter, though it took a good 9 months to put a significant amount of weight back on him. HOwever, he was 28 yrs old, insulin resistant, and Cushings, so I couldn’t pump calories into him indiscriminantly.
