Talking Maya's weight gain journal/progress photos!

kay, so Maya and I are on a journey. A journey to get some weight on her.
Sizzle and I have set a goal of 50 pounds by the week before I resume school in the fall. I dont have the date, but she will get weighed the friday before I start classes again. If she hasnt reached her goal, then we will seek into medical tests to figure out why she has trouble keeping/gaining weight.
As of thursday (5/22/08) Maya weighed in at 41.8lbs. We have a mini goal of 42 by next Monday (6/2/08).

I figured I could start a journal/log of our progress!

Right now Maya eats 7 cups of Diamond puppy food a day. She was on Diamond Extreme Athlete, but I have to drive an hour to get that formula, and I couldnt get down there in time to get it before we ran out, so I got a different version of Diamond food that i can find in my town. So once the puppy food is gone, Maya will be going back on the Extreme Athlete Formula.
I also have started (As of today) feeding 3 cups of food, 3 times a day to make 9 cups of food. Tomorrow I will be adding Nutro Canned food as a suppliment. (Im guessing I might do half a can per day, but I dont know yet)

Also, tonight I made Satin Balls (grossest thing EVER!) and will be feeding three of those per day.
I have a high calorie liquid suppliment called DYNE that I can supplimet too, but Im going to hold off on that. If Maya doesnt meet the 42 pound weight goal by next Monday, I will also add the DYNE to the feeding regimine.

On to today's pictures



I know, I suck at stacking a dog (never done it before), this was just an attempt to get a good side body shot.



And, just to show you the grossness of the satin balls...
Sizzle says they smell "YUMMY"... uhmmm... think she has roses shoved in her nose or something becuase the smell made me gag!



I will update weekly

She's beautiful, as ever, but you're right.. too skinny. I really, really hope this works for her and that if it is a medical issue, it is easily and cheaply treated.

Saga needs to add 5 or 6 pounds before Sizzle and I are comfortable with her weight, so the sisters will do the weight gain challenge together. Saga is 43.3 now. So pretty much, first one to 50 wins eh?

If Sizzle thinks the Satin Balls smell good, then they must.... we have the same "this dog food smells GOOD" nose.

She is so pretty! Good luck with getting weight on her. I've made the satin balls in the past for skinny fosters and they worked really well for them.

Good Luck!!

I hope that everything you are trying works. Hopefully it isn't a medical issue.

I can't vouch for the smell of Satin balls, I have never had the privilege of making them. But I do agree with Hillside, if Sizzle says that they smell good, then I would probably like the smell of them as well.

Milo- google satin balls. basically it's a bunch of foods and youmix them up like you would a meatloaf. Their goal is toput weight on underweight dogs, and suppoedly they do it fast!s

I loooove the smell of Satin Balls... must be the oatmeal and the molasses, mixed with the Total Cereal. YUM.

Good luck, I hope this does the trick for her! If not, my buddy in MN gave you some good things to think about and test for.
