Question Skinny deer 10 months old

Hello sweet Ellie has just came out of winter like all other deer and we didnt see her for awhile and she has came back to us skinnier than we would like her to be.what is the safest quickest way to help put her back at a healthy weight.she is very active and playful. Urine appears normal and stool is what it should be .I dont think there is anything wrong with her other than she was away for awhile and just needing extra goodies to help her regain weight. Also I havent wormed her. So how much do I give her and what needs should it be.i have been giving her record rack feed but she jys nibbles a few pieces here and there and doesnt seem Interested

Put either soybean oil or corn oil on the feed.
