Vitamin E is a fat soluble anti-oxidant which is stored in the liver. It reduces
fat oxidation and increases the production of cholesterol. It is important for its
role in preventing free radicals from damaging healthy tissue. It is also involved
in the formation of red blood cells.
Vitamin E can be neutralised in food preparation. A dog with a deficiency in vitamin
E may show signs of retinal dysfunction and muscle dystrophy.
It is believed that supplementation with vitamin E can improve some skin disorders.
Vitamin E is found in many foods including avocados, asparagus, egg, milk, nuts,
soya, spinage, wheat germ and wholegrain foods.
