    There is no known downside to feeding medium-chain triglycerides to dogs with dementia and idiopathic epilepsy, as they have been shown to have potential health benefits.

    There is a large foundation of evidence that medium-chain triglycerides may help improve cognitive function in both people and dogs with dementia and idiopathic epilepsy. In a study of dogs with idiopathic epilepsy, those that were fed a diet enriched with medium-chain triglycerides had significantly fewer seizures than those on a standard diet. Another study found that dogs with dementia who were fed a diet containing medium-chain triglycerides had improved cognitive function and reduced anxiety.
