This is a prescription medicine. A prescription is required from your veterinarian before we can supply this product. Please ensure that you have read the "How to Order" page before ordering this item. The original, physical copy of the accompanying prescription will be collected upon delivery.
Bromav is an antiepileptic drug that is used in dogs to control seizures that are not controlled by phenobarbital alone, or in dogs that do not tolerate phenobarbital well. Potassium bromide works by decreasing seizure activity within the central nervous system. Cats are less likely to be treated with potassium bromide because they have a relatively high incidence of side effects.
Give this medication to your pet exactly as your veterinarian prescribes. If you miss giving your pet a dose of potassium bromide, give the next dose as soon as you remember or, if it is close to the next scheduled dose, return to the regular schedule. Do not double dose to catch up.
Potassium bromide can be irritating to the gastrointestinal tract. It may be better tolerated if given with food. Because this drug is so irritating, you want to be sure that your dog eats enough food to push or carry the drug all the way through the esophagus and into the stomach.
It is important to control your dog’s salt intake while it is receiving potassium bromide. Discuss with your veterinarian any changes in your dog’s diet. Bromide toxicity can occur in animals that are changed to a low-salt diet. Increased salt intake will decrease bromide levels, placing the animal at risk for a seizure.

Less common side effects include irritation of the gastrointestinal tract, vomiting, loss of appetite, increased thirst and urination, pancreatitis, and constipation.
Older animals may have a higher incidence of adverse side effects.
