Potassium Bromide for Pets
Potassium bromide is an antiepileptic medication used to control seizures in dogs when phenobarbital alone is ineffective or when phenobarbital is poorly tolerated.
It reduces seizure activity in the central nervous system. Due of the relatively high occurrence of side effects in felines, potassium bromide is less commonly used to treat felines.
Although it is an effective medication, it can take up to four months for its concentration to reach therapeutic levels. Your veterinarian may administer a “loading dosage” to your animal at the outset of treatment in order to increase medication levels more swiftly.
If your dog is receiving a loading dosage, you and your veterinarian will need to closely monitor your dog due to the greater risk of adverse effects associated with the larger dose.
