    Does anyone know how much vitamin E to supplement with when you are giving fish body oil?

    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.

    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.
