    Does anyone give B-1 to their lab? Is it safe ?

    Suppose to help with the fleas. I don't use it. Brewers Yeast good for dogs (Omegas and 6, thiamine and B), but I would check with the vet. I just don't like to give unless I ask. Just me.

    I give half of a B complex to mine daily. B's should not hurt since they are water soluble.

    Retired dogs are the ones I enjoy most. Nothing to do but enjoy their company, and reflect on the good times.
    But it is hard to see them wither.

    On the recommendation of the vet, I gave both of my senior dogs B-12 supplements (liquid, injected) once or twice a week, and it made a world of difference for both dogs. We called it their happy juice. Check with a knowledgeable vet for proper dose, but it is water soluble and they just pee out any excess. You can buy a big bottle of it and a handful of syringes, do it yourself at home for next to nothing.
