Is 'he supplement' grammatically correct? "It was with veterinary requirements that my horse supplement his regular diet with horsey granola?

Yes, it is correct. After certain words like advice, recommend, order, etc. the subjunctive form is used.
It was recommended that he GO to the doctor.
The general ordered that he BE discharged.
The advice from the vet was that the horse supplement his diet.

Yes, this is grammatically correct: the verb 'supplement' here is used in the Subjunctive mood. It's widely used in American English, but a British speaker would more likely say 'that my horse should supplement his diet' ...
The fact that the horse would not actually 'supplement' anything is irrelevant to the grammatical correctness of the sentence.

Try this "Veterinary advice was that I supplement my horse's regular diet with horse granola"
A horse cannot supplement his own diet. Think about it.Source(s): I'm English
