Anticonvulsant therapies for elderly dogs can extend quality life by a lot

Merck Manual is full of great information. But this page serves me well when checking out some of the newer anti-convulsant therapies.

I’ve seen Bromism and will never give Potassium Bromide. I’ve had great luck with diazepam b.i.d dosing for siezures; and have used Gaba for a long time as well. But the new stuff is equally cool.

So I was looking for info on Keppra (mainly dosing, acclimation, and weaning) and this page showed up.

Anticonvulsant Therapies, Monotherapy and combined therapies, long range.

Enjoy.
