PRESCRIPTION COMPOUNDING FOR CANINE EPILEPSY

Epilepsy is one of the most common neurologic diseases in dogs.  Epilepsy simply refers to repeated seizures. Seizures may occur as a one time event in an animal from a variety of causes, but only if the seizures repeat again, and again, over a period of time is it called epilepsy.

The pharmacists at Bayview Pharmacy have the ability to compound certain medications for your dog.  These medications will be custom dosed based on your dog's weight and symptoms, and may come in the following forms: flavored treats, flavored suspensions, flavored capsules, transdermal gels, and injection solutions to name a few.

A veterinarian might prescribe any of the following medications to be compounded for a dog with epilepsy:

Potassium Bromide

Phenobarbital

Gabapentin
