K-BroVet Potassium Bromide
K-BroVet Potassium Bromide 9 9
Controls seizures but hardly "delicious." In terms of controlling seizures, this medication has been great, after the initial loading period. We've only needed to increase the dosage once over the last almost four years (touch wood). No liver toxicity issues so far (my vet said that there's less of a chance of that happening with KBro c/t phenobarbital or some of the other drugs). The one downside - this tablet is hardly a "delicious liver flavour." The only way to get it down is to force it or use pill pockets. I'd love to just give Nellie her meds without having to get the exact ratio of pill pocket over tablet required for her to not be able to smell it, so if this could be improved, you'd go up to 5 stars. 03/24/2015
used for epileptic dog My lab mix started having seizures when she was 2. I put her on phenobarbital when she started to have one seizure per month per my vets advice. She had awful side effects so I took her off the phenobarb. Phenobarb also has long term side effects that can cause organ failure and causes dogs to be dependent (if you don't give them meds they will have seizures). She is 60 lbs and now takes potassium bromide twice a day. She takes a 250 mg in the morning and 500 mg at night. She still has about one seizure every two months but they only last 3 minutes or less and seem to be less severe. This product has less negative side effects and I have been happy with it. 07/03/2014
Knock on Wood!!!!! My 7 year old German Shepherd started having seizures at the age of 2. He was immediately put on phenobarbital because they were so bad (cluster or multiple) in 5 years he had over 1200 seizures. anywhere from 11 to 19 over a 3 day period every 4-6 weeks. I know this cause I mark them all on a calendar. In January he was put on Potassium Bromide and has been taken off the pheno and today Easter Sunday 2014 he has not had a seizure in 17 weeks. Knock on wood. I have never been so happy with a product. My days no longer consist of being home to watch him when he has them, and my nights do not consist of being woke every 3 hours to take care of him. I still worry they will start again every day but anything is better than it was. 04/20/2014
tablets are hassle-free Our Shih Tzu, Buster, has had seizures since he was about 16months old. We went through expensive and difficult medication regimes with him before we were able determine that he could not use phenobarbital. We have been able to control his seizures with KBr but in our area it is only available in liquid form - which he hates the taste and would fight to avoid his medicine. When we discovered that Pet Meds had liver flavored tablets we were overjoyed!!!! We simply break it up on top of his kibble and he eats it right up. We are so grateful that the tablets are also affordable from Pet Meds! 11/16/2013
This seems to work!! My 4 year old golden retriever began having severe seizures at age 3. I was familiar with seizures as I previously had a Irish Setter which I treated with Primidone. I did not want my golden to go through that. My vet prescribed Potassium Bromide and so far it has worked. He has had a couple of mild seizures but for the most part seizure free. Sort of expensive and long term so look to Pet Med to save you a little money. 10/14/2012

Talk to other pet lovers about this product.
If I understand the dosage stated it is 13.5mg per pound of dog weight.... That is allot when your dog is a german shepherd weighs 85-90 pounds..... Is this correct or am I missing something?
Answer:Although both medications can be used to treat seizures,they are not in the same drug class and therefore are not interchangeable. Speak to your veterinarian if this may be an option for your pet.
It is a 200 MG/ML oral solution and it is prescribed to give 1.5ML once daily. Can I use the tablets? And if I can how much would I give?
Answer:we carry the K BROVET TABLETS IN 250MG AND 500MG. The dose you are giving is
300 mg so the tablets are not a good option. We do carry K BROVET ORAL SOLUTION.
It is butterscotch flavored. It may be an option for you. The strength is 250 mg per ml
so to measure out 300 mg , You would give 1.2 ml of this solution. Ask your vet what they
think. This may be a much cheaper option.
Answer:The safety of K-Brovet in pregnant dogs has not been determined. Discuss all concerns and medication (presciption and over-the-counter) use with your veterinarian.
