Do dogs produce their own vitamin C?


Humans lost the ability to produce their own vitamin C through evolution, but do dogs (and cats) still produce their own vitamin C?

    I would assume a dog would produce as much vit C as they need, which would vary on status of health. Would it increase during times of illness? Is it possible for a dog to produce too little C? Any idea how much they actually do poduce?
