You could talk to your vet about adding a fat supplement like ricebran to help with the initial gain.

Good luck! You should take before and after pictures!
thank you and I certainly will be taking before and after pictures. I am just so glad that I got her when I did because I feel like she probably would have died. I will definitely try soaking the grain
Here's a link to a post with some pictures if your interested My new baby
