Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but wanted to touch base with you. Now this wouldn't be something to use in dogs as it would likely lead to obesity due to their not actually having a carbohydrate requirement. Instead, if you are to increase his muscle mass you just need to feed higher animal protein levels. So, ideally offer puppy food or a commercial diet for active/working dogs. Or you can even add cooked chicken (no bones), beef or pork to his diet to give him more protein building blocks for growth and development.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
