I have been reading all the amazing benefits of giving Ester-C to a dog with hip dysplasia. I'm sold, and plan to start Annie on it ASAP. Everything I've read says the same thing, for a dog around 25 pounds, she should get about 1,000mg's a day, broken into twice a day. 500mg's in the morning, 500mg's in the evening.
Question: I found a few places online, mainly german shepherd boards, that say that giving the human form of Ester-C is fine. This is because it is non-acidic unlike regular vitamin c, and is buffered down with calcium, being much easier on the GI tract unlike regular vitamin c.
Does anyone here give their dog the human brand of Ester-C? Most that gave the human brand bought the Walmart or Sam's Club brand and said they still saw amazing results with it.
