Seizures (Epilepsy) in Rabbits

Treatment

 

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.
