    Does she eat normally? Any vomiting?
    I am assuming she has had stool checks for parasites, blood work to rule out liver or kidney problems?

    Some dogs are just "poor dooers" but I wouldn't count on that until I had ruled out everything else that could cause failure to gain weight. You may want to consider a second opinion.
