another vitamin e and fish oil question

I looked back on some old threads but not really sure what to do. Probably would make more sense to me if I wasn't so tired and feeling better.
Anyhow, I get that fish oil needs to be supplemented with E but is there a fish oil that already has E for dogs? I am still working on figuring out the raw diet stuff I started Stella on about a month ago. I just don't want to have to think about too much other stuff for a while.... She is about 80 lbs so 2500 mg fish oil a day? How much E? Or better yet, any suggestions for a brand that already includes E?

This is what I posted in the stickied thread up top, 'Vitamins and Supplements".

Hope it helps.

I give 400 IUs of natural mixed tocopherals 2 x per week.

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.
