See if you can increase the amount of beet pulp you're leaving with her at night and if she'll still clean it up by morning.  If she won't eat more veggie oil than she is now, you might consider trying one of the "dry" fatpak products.  Keep in mind it also takes awhile to put weight both on and off, so be patient about looking for results.  It might just take awhile to adjust to the changes going on.

OK.  Just wondering.  :-)
good luck,
