Phenylbutazone for Horses Uses and Side Effects


Hialeah Gardens, FL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/03/2014 -- Phenobarbital is an anticonvulsant used to treat seizures in dogs and cats caused by epilepsy. Low and moderate doses of the drug can lower the number and intensity of seizures without the sedation seen at higher doses. It is a scheduled IV controlled substance and can only be obtained with a prescription from a veterinarian. It can be given as a tablet or injected.

Animals taking phenobarbital may experience increased appetite, be more thirsty, restless, anxious or lethargic. These symptoms are usually temporary and will go away as treatment continues. Antihistamines, narcotics and tranquilizers can react with phenobarbital. Chronic use of the drug can damage the liver. Animals with heart, liver, lung disease and low red blood cell count need to be closely monitored if they are prescribed phenobarbital.
