I wouldnt recommend putting vitamin e oil but would recommend   you go to a good quality pet store or vet clinic they have vitamin supplements that are called DermCaps or OmegaCaps or similar. They are a great supplements with omega fatty acids/fish oils/vit E and so forth. You will see results in about 3 days. They help iwth the dry skin and shedding. Also i would recommend puting a little vegetabale oil in its food and a little baby oil on its coat. This will also make the dogs coat shining.
