Does anyone know how much vitamin E to supplement with when you are giving fish body oil?
I give 200iuor ui/daily... whatever it is, lol, as per Mordy!!
Can we give the vitamin E for human one?
100iu /25 pounds sounds right to me.
Yes human vit E is what you want. Dog supplements tend to be low quality at best. Also look for a product that says "mixed tocopherolsand tocotrienols".
I give my 50 pound dogs one 400iu capsule every other day to average 200iu/day- as suggested by Mordy since liquid vit E in dropper is more expensive.
Oh should I be getting Vitamin E supplement as well when I give the fish body oil?
Are there any others?
If you are supplementing fish body oil, it is best to also give Vitamin E with it.
Oh it is. I am going to start giving my dogs Fish oil...so I should start giving Vitiman E too?
yup. giving omega 3's (as in fish body oil) increases the body's need for vit E . 100iu/25lbs of body weight is the calc Mordy uses.
