I've been pondering that I may be over supplementing vitamin E. I've seen recommendations of 400 IU per day which is pretty high (as per the articles linked in the OP).

Since vitamin E is fat soluble I know one should be more careful.

I ran across this article written by veterinarians about vitamin E in racing sled dogs. I noted that the 400 IU was for active racing sled dogs, not average household dogs so I thought I'd share this for informational purposes.

Default I need help with picking out supplements...

Hi, my boyfriend and I have a male GSD. He is soon to be 4 years old.We have been feeding him TASTE OF THE WILD along with beef or chicken. We have been talking about getting supplements for him, you know, to make sure he has a balanced diet. Honestly, I am completely overwhelmed by all the different products out there....can anyone please recommend a brand or type? It seems that some give their dogs one product while others are combining so many different things. I asked the vet but didn't get an answer there....what do you give your babies?
