Ok thanks! Maybe I should add a couple of eggs a week.
The prepared food does contain some organ meat though, so maybe the Vit E is not a problem?

fish oil depletes the vitamin E dogs store....so yes, supplementing with a human grade 400iu E gelcap(with mixed trocepherols)every few days is recommended when giving omega oil. E is fat stored so you don't really need to give it daily....eggs and many organs contain E so the dog does get it in whole food form if you are giving organ and eggs.
I don't give the herring oil so don't know the recommended amount on that...sounds like you are doing it correctly!

Do I need Vit E supplement?
I feed my dog a mix of prepared raw and whole raw, I will throw in a chicken back, chicken/lamb/turkey neck etc.
I don't see in the prepared raw food that any fish oil is added, so I feed a bit of herring oil on top. I was reading up and an article said that if you feed fish oil, you need to also feed Vitamin E?
Is this correct?
How much should I feed? I have a 70lb female, the instructions on the herring oil say to feed 5ml per 50 lbs, so I feed about 7 ml of the oil.
