Learn More About Your Pet’s Seizure Medications
If your dog has seizures or convulsions, your dog may have epilepsy or a host of other causes for the seizures. Take your pet to Companion Animal Hospital for a full-scale evaluation. Most vets will try to rule out other common causes of seizures before deciding whether your pet has epilepsy or not.
Phenobarbital, potassium bromide, and diazepam are the most commonly used medications for treating seizures and epilepsy in dogs and cats. There are a number of other anticonvulsant drugs that can be prescribed to reduce canine and feline seizures, including a pet-friendly dose of valium.
