Anticonvulsants or antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) are used to stop an ongoing seizure or to decrease the frequency or severity of anticipated future seizures. During a seizure episode or status epilepticus, the route of administration for AEDs is intravenously. This is because of the emergent nature of the treatment.
For long-term maintenance, the oral route is preferred, although absorption may be limited or variable depending on the drug used.
the most common drugs used to treat seizures in dogs are:
- Keppra (levetiracetam)
- Potassium Bromide
