    Question submitted during Session III of The Canine Epilepsy Summit:

    "What’s the best way to determine how much MCT oil to give?"

    - Answer provided by a Session III Panelist:

    Have a look at our studies, where we added to the diet. If you want to be sure, then best to use MCT enriched diets like Purina NeuroCare or Bright Mind or ask a nutritionist for an individualized diet for your dog.

    Regarding the product mentioned by Dr. Dewey (in his presentation): A 10kg dog would get around 4 to 5ml twice daily, 20kg dog 7ml twice daily and a 30kg dog 10 ml twice daily.
