Is there anything I can do to strengthen my 12 year old schnauzers back legs? Are there vitamins I should be giving her?

There are various supplements you can add to your dog's feed, such as Yumove and Joint Aid which will help joints. You could try adding raw meat to the diet for extra protein to help muscles, but too much protein is also not good for older dogs, so it might be an idea to discuss this with your vet.
Also, don't let her jump on and off furniture, if she can, or in and out of the car as this will not help her old joints and legs.
