I have a german shepard, 10 years old and he has just started having seizures in clusters. Is potassium bromide and phenobarbitol the only medications currently being used for seizures? The problem with these compounds is ataxia. Also what are other possible causes for seizures in older dogs other than cerebral tumors? Thankyou!
The ataxia you are seeing will start to diminish once your pets body adjusts to the medication. It can take up to 2 weeks. Toxicity, liver disease, idiopathic epilepsy are some other causes but less likely in an older dog. Have you thought about an MRI. vetcare
