    Question submitted during Session III of The Canine Epilepsy Summit:

    "My dog has had pancreatitis so I had to stop giving him MCT oil. Would omega 3s also be dangerous for him to use?"

    - Answer provided by a Session III Panelist:

    Sorry that you had this experience. MCT oil should not cause pancreatitis. In people it is even given for people with pancreatitis, as it is metabolized differently than long chain fatty acids. I would not give fish oils as there are other long chain fatty acids included in the products.
