    She's using a lot of her own nutrition on her puppies. You should probably feed her more then average and a higher protein food.

    I rescued my pitbull only to find out she was pregnant lol.

    She was strong, muscular, and healthy looking... after she had the puppies she got SOOOOOOO skinny!!

    I was EXTREMELY worried, because like you said, I could see her ribs and hip bones.

    But she gained the weight back is now muscular and strong. But you have to keep up with the feedings. While she was pregnant she should have eaten 3 times as much as she normally did, and be offered it 3 times a day... this continues while she is nursing the puppies.

    You will see the weight start coming back on once you wean the puppies :)
