Unhappy My female pit who gave birth a mnth ago needs help gaining weight plz help.

She had a liter of ten on nov. 28 and she has been sucked up ever since. I feed to 3 times a day(beniful with wet dog food) and she still looks like a bag of bones =/ I understand that feeding the ten pups must be a key factor but I have already started winging them on to wet puppy food to try to help her out. But she still looks death.
Any advice on what else to feed her to to fatten up? Please help!

Have you had her tested for worms and coccidia?
Sounds like round and/or hookworms
Because if she has either of those, and if you didn't deworm her she does have worms, she will never gain weight even if she ate a bag a day.
Hook or round worms most likely cause.
If she has either get some pyrantel from the vet.
Pups will have it too if mother wasn't wormed as they need milk for six weeks. They get the meds through the milk.
Mother should have been on puppy feed in time of nursing as well.

what are you feeding her and how often? Have you added goats milk? (NOT COW milk, GOAT) Are the puppies gaining weight? When were they weaned?

Beneful is junk, it's fillers and sugar. Try feeding a food with some meat in it and maybe add some satin balls. Wean the pups if they aren't already.

they could have been weened off her at 4 weeks of age, thatis alot of pups on her no wonder she is thin. I would add a bit of oatmeal and goatsmilk { dont ever use cows milk} to her GOOD quality kibble. I would get her off the beneful and either onto something like TOTW, or acana or even Blue buffalo would be better.
If she is really bad you can always make a batch of satin balls and add that to her meals , but The goatsmilk should work.
