I have a very small tea-cup Yorkie that has a lot of energy and burns off anykind of fat he may have…Dr.s never said he was under weight. However, I’ve tried feeding him all and every kinds of dog food I can in cans. he will not eat any of them just some dry now and then.

Is there any other kind of food I can give him to help him gain anykind of fat????
