What is KBroVet-CA1:
KBroVet-CA1 is an anticonvulsant used in the treatment of seizures in dogs; however, it is not uncommon for veterinarians to use this medication to treat seizures in cats. KBroVet-CA1 may be used alone or in combination with other anticonvulsant medications. KBroVet-CA1 may also be used for other conditions not listed.
What should I discuss with my veterinarian before giving KBroVet-CA1 to my pet:
Tell your veterinarian if your pet is allergic to potassium bromide. Tell your veterinarian if your pet has kidney disease, or if the pet is pregnant or lactating. Inform your veterinarian of any other medications such as diuretics (furosemide, Lasix, Salix), or sedatives your pet may be taking, as well as any vitamins and supplements since interactions may occur. Periodic blood tests are necessary to monitor the level of the drug in the blood.
How should this medication be given:
Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. KBroVet-CA1 may be given with food to reduce some gastric side effects. Leave plenty of water for the pet to drink. If you do not understand the directions ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. Store KBroVet-CA1 in a tightly sealed container at room temperature. Keep this medication away from children and pets.
What happens if I miss giving a dose:
Do not miss a dose. Missing a dose may cause a seizure. Give the missed dose as soon as you remember during the same day. However, if you don't remember until the next day, skip the dose you missed and give only the next regularly scheduled dose. Do not give a double dose of the medication.
What happens if I overdose the pet:
Seek emergency veterinary medical treatment. Symptoms of overdose may include extreme sedation, incoordination, loss of appetite, vomiting, constipation, muscle pain or twitching, staggering, inability to use one or more limbs, decreased or slow reflexes, tremors, and other CNS symptoms.
What should I avoid while giving KBroVet-CA1 to my pet:
The safe use of this drug in pregnant or lactating animals has not been determined. Use with caution in animals with kidney disease, older animals, and those with other health problems.
What are the possible side effects of KBroVet-CA1:
If your pet experiences an allergic reaction, signs may include facial swelling, hives, scratching, and sudden onset of diarrhea, vomiting, shock, seizures or coma. If these signs occur, contact your veterinarian immediately. Side effects such as transient drowsiness when used with other anticonvulsant medications may last a few weeks. Change in appetite, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, and incoordination may also occur as well as increased thirst and urination. Dogs may also develop skin rashes or behavior changes. Cats may also develop a respiratory condition similar to asthma. Bromide salts have been associated with the development of pancreatitis. Symptoms may include loss of appetite, abdominal pain, and vomiting. When giving high doses, side effects may include severe vomiting, muscle pain, twitching, staggering, inability to use one or more limbs. If any of these symptoms occur, contact the veterinarian.
What other drugs will affect KBroVet-CA1:
Before giving KBroVet-CA1, tell your veterinarian if your pet is being given a diuretic (Lasix, Salix, furosemide), a sedative, vitamins or supplements.
