Once a day I give my cavs a 1000mg fish oil caplet (I take one also).:)

My guys also get fish oil (salmon oil). I really think the best supplement isn't even a supplement at all...keep the weight off of them! ;)

Yep I'm with Cathy T on the weight issue. Keeping the weight off will do what a bucket load of supplements could never achieve. Exercise is important too. My guys get a fish-oil & a vitamin E supplement several times a week, but not every day.

I use the Vitamin E as well, a well known breeder here in the UK swears by it, she uses it to improve fertility, also the vigour of her newborn puppies (via mum's milk) and also to help with the hearts.
Of course keeping them at a healthy weight and providing regular exercise goes a long way too, the heart is a muscle after all and regular exercise helps it work more efficiently.
