Q. My dog just started having seizures and it has been one after another today. Brought him to vet was given potassium bromide. Can I do anything else

Answered By

A. Just for general knowledge, when a seizure start make the room darker - it might help stopping the seizure quicker. you should ask for your vet to give you diazepam rectal tubes (valium - given during long seizures in order to stop them).

Potassium bromide is one medication option, but there are a few more - the more common ones are Phenobarbital and Pexion.
