Successful long term treatment of a dog with psychomotor seizures using carbamazepine.

Author information

Department of Veterinary Anatomy, University of Sydney, New South Wales.


Psychomotor seizures (temporal lobe epilepsy) were diagnosed in a dog based on history, clinical findings and electroencephalography. Long-term seizure control was achieved with carbamazepine, despite serum drug concentrations which were low to unmeasurable. It is suggested that serum levels of carbamazepine are not a useful guide to clinical efficacy in the dog, that an unmeasured metabolite of carbamazepine may account for the anti-convulsant activity and that carbamazepine may be potentially useful in treating certain canine seizure disorders.
