Well, there's a difference between brewer's yeast and nutritional yeast, but I actually like both.

I mix the brewers yeast into the kibble when I feed, and it goes down in the mad rush to consume food!

Mordy: does the brewers yeast have a substancial benefit for the dogs coat like I have been told it does? I give my dog 3 tabs daily (about half of what is suggested for a human) it also has a B-complex (heavy with b-12) mixed in too.

Also mordy can you make sure to check out the "my dog is dying" thread?

thanks

Yeast itself is rich in B-complex vitamins, which are good for skin, nails and coat (or hair, in humans ).

The vet recommended BioFats.... but Toby doesn't like the smell or taste.

We tried Pawier....for Toby's tearing....but Toby doesn't like the smell or taste.

Now we are trying Nupro......we'll see how it goes!~

Visa's on a raw diet, so she gets plenty of natural vitamins, but I give her Nutri-cal because it is a high calorie supplement and she needs to keep her weight up. I also give her Bio-Skin and Coat and Omega Fish Oils.

Mordy, I give Grizzly Salmon Oil. Why do I need to supplement with Vitamin E?

Due to the high content of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) in fish oils, they are prone to oxidation which makes them rancid and potential initiators of chain reactions which can lead to oxidation of fat and cholesterol molecules in the body. This "lipid peroxidation reaction" is believed to be implicated in cancer and inflammation. Vitamin E is an antioxidant and its job is (among other things) to prevent this kind of reaction.

Studies have shown that daily intake of fish oil supplements reduces the plasma concentration of vitamin E to below normal range and the vitamin E concentration in the red blood cells dropped very significantly, but the addition of a vitamin E supplement fixed both of these problems.
