I have decided to start supplementing Vitamin C with their new raw diet.

How much vitamin C a day do you give by weight?

I am also reading mixed reviews on garlic. Does anyone add garlic to their dogs diet? Why and how much?

Unlike humans, dogs are able to manufacture their own vitamin C in their liver. So unless your dog has been sick for some time or under some sort of unusual stress there really is no need to supplement vitamin C.

It is far more important that your dogs are getting enough calcium, vitamins A, D, E than vitamin C...unless they are ill.

I started them on Vitamin E twice a week.

What about a B complex? I've read that could be needed with a raw diet.
