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.

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?

vitamin and/or supplement recommendations?

63lb female gsd 2 years old. She has a history of some digestion issues. Since she was a puppy she's had a very sensitive stomach.. diarrhea, vomiting, refusing to eat food, picky eater, etc. We've gone through every kibble known to man then she starting throwing up blood. She eventually stopped eating and lost a ton of weight
Vets couldn't figure out what was wrong with her but she's okay now that we're on raw.... Knock on wood!

She doesn't throw up blood anymore... but I have seen her regurgitate a little then swallow and once she threw up a piece of bone she had for breakfast.
Hoping to find some type of vitamin and/or supplement to help with this problem? and/or help with just getting some extra vitamins, etc.
Anything and everything would be great help!!

Why is it happening?

Thanks for the vitamin links, but I'm hoping to get a better understanding of why this is happening in the first place? Is it grains/gluten? I'm curious how often this is happening as one of my close friends had to switch to a raw diet for their Collie. My GSDs aren't having problems with their current food (Purina One Sensitive Systems) but I was just wondering in case it happens to us.
