Frequently Asked Questions

K BroVet is a prescription medication used in the treatment of seizures in dogs. The active ingredient is potassium bromide.

K BroVet is labeled for use in dogs.

  • Anticonvulsant used in the treatment of seizures

  • Can be used in combination with other anti-seizure medications as prescribed by your veterinarian

  • Used for some types of Cushing's disease caused by a pituitary tumor in dogs

  • Comes in two flavored forms for easy administration

The potassium bromide in K BroVet works at the cellular level to decrease seizure activity by depressing nerve activity and excitability.

K BroVet is given by mouth. Giving with food may decrease some side effects. The first doses may be larger than subsequent doses. Always follow the dosage instructions provided by your veterinarian. It is vital that you not miss a dose and that you give the medication exactly as your veterinarian prescribes.

If you have difficulty giving the medication, contact your veterinarian.

This medication should only be given to the pet for whom it was prescribed.

K BroVet, like all other medications for epilepsy and seizures, will not cure the disease. While taking K BroVet your pet will probably continue to have seizures but they will generally occur less frequently and be less severe.

This medication comes in a flavored liquid or flavored tablet form.

Talk to your veterinarian about what tests and exams may be necessary while your pet is taking K BroVet. Also discuss how long the treatment period will be and what type of outcome is expected.

Tell your veterinarian if your pet has kidney disease, may be pregnant or is nursing, or if you intend to breed your pet.

Notify your veterinarian of any other medications or supplements your pet is taking, and also if your pet has had any reactions to previous medications.

It is important that you DO NOT miss a dose of this medication. Missing a dose could cause a seizure. If you miss a dose, give it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to the regular schedule. Do not give two doses at once.

K BroVet, like all other medications for epilepsy and seizures, will not cure the disease. While taking K BroVet, your pet will probably continue to have seizures but they will generally occur less frequently and be less severe. Keep a journal of when your pet has seizures, how long they last, if they are related to any other event, etc. This will help monitor the effectiveness of the K BroVet.

Your pet may need periodic blood tests while taking K BroVet.

Do not miss a dose and try to give the K BroVet at the same time every day.

Not for use in animals hypersensitive (allergic) to it. The safety of this drug in pregnant or lactating animals (female animals nursing their young) has not been determined. Use with extreme caution in these animals.

Use with caution in animals with kidney disease, older animals, and those with other health problems.

Side effects most often include transient sedation (drowsiness), especially when used with phenobarbital. This may last several weeks. May also see changes in appetite, vomiting, constipation, or personality changes. Other side effects include increased thirst, drinking, and urination.

Consult your veterinarian if you notice any of the above side effects.

When giving high doses, may see severe vomiting, muscle pain, twitching, staggering, an inability to use one or more limbs, or pupils of different sizes. If you observe any of these signs, contact your veterinarian immediately.

Potassium bromide, when used in conjunction with phenobarbital, has been associated with the development of pancreatitis, with signs that include loss of appetite, abdominal pain, and vomiting.

If your pet experiences an allergic reaction to the medication, signs may include facial swelling, hives, scratching, sudden onset of diarrhea, vomiting, shock, seizures, pale gums, cold limbs, or coma. If you observe any of these signs, contact your veterinarian immediately.

Store at room temperature in a tight, light-resistant, childproof container. Keep out of reach of children and pets.

Overdosing is more likely seen from chronic overdosing than with a single large dose. Signs may include extreme sedation, loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle pain or twitching, staggering, inability to use one or more limbs, drooling, decreased/slow reflexes, pupils of different sizes, tremors, and other central nervous system (CNS) symptoms.

If you know or suspect your pet has had an overdose, or if you observe any of these signs in your pet, contact your veterinarian immediately.

Consult your veterinarian before using K BroVet with vitamins, supplements, diuretics (e.g., furosemide, Lasix), or drugs that affect the nervous system (e.g. sedatives), since interactions may occur. Salt intake needs to remain steady since chloride levels in the blood can affect the levels of bromide. Do not restrict salt intake or give salty foods or treats (e.g., pig ears) while your pet is receiving K BroVet. Contact your veterinarian before changing diets or types of treats.
