I have seen all three of these oils added to meat/kibble diets as a daily supplement. Which do you use and why? Is there any difference in the bioavailability between the three? Is one more effective than the others?

The best of the best is high grade vitamin E, alpha-tocopherol, which has the most bioavailability. At this grade, the oil isn't just a fat supplement, but useful antioxidant. This is what you find in human grade vitamin E pills, but I don't think it's economically possible (for most people) to feed it to the dogs. I've used Canola oil for years and when used in approximately the right ratio to an animal fat, it helps in the absorption of the animal fat. Here in town it's over $50 for 5 gallons of Canola oil, so we hauled a bakers dozen up from Whitehorse this year for half the price. Seems to keep them nice and shiny and helps keep them fat too. It was - 10C this morning and using 1.5 cups in the morning bucket for 12 dogs, and 1.5 cups in the evening seems to be working fine.
