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?
I have read that they produce 40mg/kg, which is way too little if you believe the megadose theories. I met Linus Pauling years ago, back in college, but there was no one even interested in the subject in dogs back then. Does it increase?I dont think
You met Linus Pauling?? That's AWESOME! (I'm a fan can you tell?) It's a shame no one is really paying attention to vit C in humans or dogs. I'm using it as an antihistamine on my dog and myself, and the results are amazing! Way better than benadryl!
