Dr Lee, thank you for this article! An eye opener!
I do have a question for you though. I have heard that feeding salmon oil causes a dog's system to use up it's supply of vitamin E slowly making the dog deficient, and that vitamin E should be supplemented along with the salmon oil. Is this true? If so, how much vitamin E should be supplemented in comparison to the amount of salmon oil fed? I would also be interested to hear what you believe is a good amount of salmon oil to supplement with as the suggested 16-18 mL (for 85lb dog) on my bottle of salmon oil seems like a lot, no?
Thanks you for any response! =]
