Description

K-BroVet is a prescription chicken-liver-flavored chewable tablet containing potassium bromide to treat seizure disorders. In addition to therapy, it can be used in combination with other anti-seizure medications or as the sole anticonvulsant.

Uses

K-BroVet potassium bromide is used to treat seizure disorders. It can be used in addition to therapy with other agents or as the sole anticonvulsant.

Possible Side Effects

Please contact your veterinarian if your pet experiences drowsiness, increased hunger, thirst, urination, vomiting, constipation, anorexia, uncoordinated movements, nausea or personality changes, including attention, seeking, irritability or aggression, and aimless pacing. Pancreatitis has been reported to be more frequent in pets on concurrent phenobarbital and bromide therapy than pets on phenobarbital alone.

FAQ

What size is a K-BroVet tablet?

It is approximately the size of a dime.

Can you feed K-BroVet with peanut butter?

There have been no tests dosing dogs with Bromides and feeding peanut butter or any other food combinations, as there are too many variables. The key is to monitor the serum bromide levels to keep them in the 1-3 mg/mL range. The dosing and diet need to be balanced to achieve this range.

Can you use K-BroVet with Phenobarbital?

Yes. You can use it with or without Phenobarbital. It is up to the veterinarian to make that determination.

Is K-BroVet a prescription?

Yes. It is a legend labeled drug as stated on the label.

What is the flavoring?

Tablets are artificial chicken liver and drops are artificial butterscotch. There is no sucrose in the drops.

Should the oral solution be refrigerated after opening?

No. The product should be kept at room temperature.

    Seizures in dogs

    By on

    Very effective in controlling my dog's seizures. She takes 250 mg 2x daily along with Phenobarbital. She was having several cluster seizures once or twice per week and they stopped once she began taking 2 Potassium Bromide tablets per day. She was still having seizures when only taking one tablet daily so it is important to determine the correct dosage.

    much better epilepsy control

    By on

    My poodle cross is elderly and he does better on this medication. However if he gets any extra salt it, does conflict. but he is doing so much better on this medication. And his liver damage test results have improved, now that he is off the other meds.
