The Food and Drug Administration conditionally approved potassium bromide chewable tablets for dogs with idiopathic epilepsy in January. Conditional approval means the drug is safe, but studies for effectiveness are still ongoing. Animals including dogs, cats, cattle, horses and rats helped prove the salt is safe.
Our dog no longer has seizures thanks to animal research helping people and animals!
