Indications

  • Vitamin E supplementation is required in deficient animals. However, vitamin E deficiency is rarely recognized in small animal medicine, although many animals have a subclinical deficiency.
  • Low hepatic vitamin E levels have been documented in liver disease in dogs: therefore it may be valuable to supplement dogs who have liver dysfunction.
