    DefaultFood to Gain Weight

    Happy was at the vet on Friday and he's losing muscle mass. He's almost 16 and most of his teeth are down to almost the gum line. (He was a massive chewer all his life). He's been on canned food for over a year now because of his teeth and the vet has suggested to start moistening some dry food with his canned for added nutrition. Any suggestions on what kind of dry food I should pick up for him?

    I doubt the brand of food matters much, there's some out there for seniors, your vet didn't suggest any?

    Right now we have Teagan on Blue Buffalo kibble and it is a high calorie food. Maybe try that?
