    I would suggest you go to your local pet supply and purchase one of their super premium brands.

    Other good things to add to a dog's food to encourage weigh gain include;

    Canned fish (mackeral, salmon, tuna no more than 2X per month)
    Plain whole milk yoghurt
    Cottage cheese
    Raw or soft scrambled or sunnyside up eggs
    high fat hamburger meat. This MUST be very fresh, and should be fed uncooked.
    chicken hearts or gizzards
    SMALL amounts of liver (liver can be laxative in effect, so caution is warranted).

    I recommend all meats be fed completely raw.

    Increase caloric intake on your dog gradually, as he may have difficulty adjusting to a rich diet since he has not been used to it.
