Long story short, my 1.5yo GSD is THE WORST eater and barely hitting 60lb for months now. Vet said she's not too skinny but she could gain some weight. I have recently been adding 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil to 3 cups of dry food once/day, and that's all she eats for the day. I cannot believe my eyes but she has been gobbling it up every time!!! I'm a little worried because obviously for any of us too much oil isn't good. But at the same time, she's eating more consistently now than ever before. Anyone know if this is okay??

3 cups in on meal? Have you ever soaked that amount in water? I would worry about bloat. Regarding the oil, olive oil would be my choice. My dogs get fat from raw chicken, beef and canned sardines and sometimes fish oil capsules
