Default Healthy Weight Gain

Titan as steadily lost weight since I have been back from my deployment, before, a healthy 95 lbs.. lean, healthy muscle, not fat. He got down to 85 but still vet wasn't very concerned said that it is better to be lighter than heavier, and that if he stayed there she would be happy. He's 77 now. no change in diet, food or exercise. Only change would actually be that around the holidays he gets more scraps. Anways, after finding nothing in bloodwork, she wants us to increase his diet for the next month and come back in.

Any suggestions on healthy additives for a kibble fed dog? I thought yogurt, cottage cheese, veggies, etc. Something other than wet food unless it's a good quality food I suppose..
