can i give my dogs sam-e. how much should i give them? also, can i give my dogs fish oil and how much. what about vitamin B12 and how much. Thanks
Hello there,

SAM-e is used at 225 mg for medium sized dogs once a day.

Fish oil is used at 1000-1500 mg per day for medium sized dogs.

B12 is used at 100-200 micrograms per kilogram body weight per day.

Your local pet store should have formulas made specific for dogs and the correct dosage listed on the label.

one dog is 26 lb., another is 38lb. and another is 44lb. would the above amounts be ok for all of them
Those doses cover dogs 20-40 pounds. I would give them all the same dose to make it easy.
