An underweight dog must be brought up to normal weight quickly and carefully to avoid health issues. Homemade treats like satin balls, a high-fat/high-carbohydrate meatball treat, can help nervous dogs gain weight. Any food or supplement used to add weight should be a temporary measure; resume normal feeding as soon as possible.

Nervous Dogs May Have Sensitive Stomachs.
A nervous dog may not wish to eat at all or may have a sensitive stomach. VetInfo recommends three different forms of treatment for a nervous dog: calming treats that balance a dog's internal chemistry, natural relaxant supplements in solid or liquid form, and pheromone treatments. If the dog's nervousness is being treated, it should be able to eat normally. Alternatively, a food designed for dogs with stomach problems can also be fed.
It's important to treat the dog's nervousness as well as keeping it fed. Consult a veterinarian or an animal behaviourist to get severe nervousness under control. If the dog's appetite does not immediately return to normal, special foods or treats can be used to increase its weight.
