Seizures (Epilepsy) in Rabbits
Some rabbits with seizures require constant supervision. During these severe cases, hospitalization is suggested to help relieve attacks and prevent permanent brain damage in the animal.
A veterinarian will often prescribe benzodiazepine medications, which can slow down the seizure activity. Antibiotics may also be necessary for patients with encephalitis or abscesses contributing to the seizures. In life-threatening cases steroid medications may be warranted, but only under veterinarian supervision.
Living and Management
The veterinarian may suggest you keep a diary of the rabbit's seizure activities. It will assist them in making a proper treatment protocol and routine.
