Anyone suppliment working dogs with human vitamins

I've heard rumors of people giving human vitamins as suppliments to their dogs - such as vitamin E to improve coat. Does anyone regularly suppliment their dogs for sport? If so, what for and in what dose?

Thanks,

-Calvin

In addition to Nupro, we give human Ester C, Vit E and Fish Oil to all the dogs. Not necessarily for sport, just for general health. Then the seniors also get human glucosamine, chondritin, Cetyl M and MSM.

Re: Anyone suppliment working dogs with human vitamins

I do suplement with human fish oil. 1/3 cost of doggy fish oil.
Also my mother is a pediatrician, so I often get free samples of vitamins and other medicines that can be used in babies and dogs.

Re: Anyone suppliment working dogs with human vitamins

I often use 'human' vitamins/supplements, such as vitamin E, DLPA, salmon oil, joint supplements, etc...
However I mostly use supplements if the dog has a condition/health problem, such as joint problems etc... For young/healthy dogs I only use salmon oil/vitamin E regularly in most cases.

Re: Anyone suppliment working dogs with human vitamins

Before when I fed kibble I gave Fish Oil and Vit E, now I feed raw and give whole fish instead. In the past I have also given Ester-C, glucosamine, chondritin, and MSM.
Currently I give all my dogs Nupro Joint Support Supplement and my 2 working dogs I am trying K9 Superfuel and Go Dog.
