K-BROVET Oral Solution

Potassium Bromide

Anticonvulsant

K-BROVET potassium bromide is used to treat seizure disorders in dogs. It can be used in addition to therapy with other agents or as the sole anticonvulsant.

K-BROVET Oral Solution is a butterscotch vanilla flavored solution containing 250 mg/mL of potassium bromide, cyanocobalamin and pyridoxine HCl.

K-BROVET Chewable Tablets are liver flavored tablets containing 250 mg or 500 mg of potassium bromide and cyanocobalamin.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

Recommended Dosage for K-BROVET Oral Solution and Tablets:

To achieve a serum level of approximately 1 mg/mL, give 120 mg/kg PO daily for 5 days then reduce to 30 mg/kg PO once daily. To achieve a serum level of approximately 1.5 mg/mL, give 160 mg/kg PO for 5 days and then reduce to 40 mg/kg PO once daily thereafter.

Among dogs responses to bromide may vary, treatment should be tailored to the individual dog, based on serum bromide concentration, success of seizure control, and the observation of adverse effects. Steady state serum concentrations generally take 4 to 5 months in dogs; therapeutic concentrations may be reached before steady state at about 4 weeks after the beginning of treatment, serum bromide concentration may be tested to assess the response to product and, if results are satisfactory, the next testing for steady state serum levels is typically about 4 months. If the dog's serum concentration is within range and the dog is doing well in the therapeutic range, serum concentration may then be tested every 6 to 12 months. Serum bromide is typically evaluated at the end of the loading period, then as described above when an animal is started with a loading dose.

Dogs - An oral dose of 30 mg of Bromide per kg of body weight every twelve hours for 115 days produced a steady state serum concentration of 2.45 mg/mL (range, 1.78 to 2.69 mg/mL) in Beagles fed a diet containing 0.55% chloride.

WARNINGS

This medication should be used cautiously in older animals as they will be more susceptible to adverse effects. This medication is not indicated for use in cats.

Possible Side Effects:

Dog may experience drowsiness when taking K-BROVET, but this will generally go away after approximately 3 weeks. Increased hunger, thirst, urination, vomiting, constipation, anorexia, and uncoordinated movements may occur with K-BROVET. During the load in dose increased nausea may be experienced.

There is no information on the relative frequency of pancreatitis in dogs associated with bromide therapy alone. However, pancreatitis has been reported to be more frequent in dogs on concurrent phenobarbital and bromide therapy than dogs on phenobarbital alone.

Personality changes have been occasionally reported in dogs on bromide, including attention seeking, irritability or aggression, and aimless pacing.

Drug interactions and/or related effects

Medications and foods containing chloride, bromide and chloride compete for reabsorption by the kidneys; increased amounts of chloride can promote loss of bromide in the urine, leading to a lowering of serum bromide concentrations: Decreased chloride consumption will promote increased renal reabsorption of bromide.

Halothane anesthesia (when inhaled a percentage of halothane is metabolized by dogs to produce bromide, along with other compounds; peak serum concentration occurs within about a day and, in one group of dogs, ranged from 0.04 to 0.088 mg/mL and persisted, with some diminishment, for at least ten days. Consideration should be given to animals that must have repeated anesthesia or that already require high serum bromide concentration for seizure control. Increased bromide levels due to metabolism of halothane are unlikely to be a significant risk for bromide toxicity in most dogs.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

K-BROVET should not be used in animals with a history of hypersensitivity to Bromide or any of the components of the solution or tablets.
