Our beautiful boy Jasper is having focal seizures and has had testing/blood work done but before doing extensive MRI, etc. tests, we spoke to our vet about trying potassium bromide. Jasper is four and a half and has struggled with inflammatory bowel disease as well (among other issues), but thankfully that has been managed for awhile now. At this stage I am just looking for shared experiences and moral support. His seizures are somewhat like a twitch but can be very abrupt and cause his whole body to twitch.
I have done some reading and it appears this may also be cluster seizures.
Does anyone have personal experience with the rectal valium protocol? I am just seeing information on that and would like to know more.
Our vet is going to start him on the potassium bromide next week but I am told that can take several weeks for the dosage to be effective.
Thanks much in advance,
Sear & Jasper

Just found the sub-forum for seizures so I'll put this there.
Sorry to clutter up the General.
thanks,
Sear
