    Thank you.

    Not that I know too much, but CBD oil derivative from cannabis, has worked wonders with people having epilepsy and I cannot see it in correct dosages not being of help to your cat. My daughter has been on CBD for many years now as result of a brain tumour and of all treatments, this showed the most promise.

    Thank you. Itís worth a try. I tried the treats, but they did not help him. But, maybe the oil is a little stronger, or maybe Iíll try a different brand. Thanks, again.

    This is an old site, but you may find some useful info here to look over, I visited it quite a bit when my dog started having seizures. Site is HERE.

It has made him really sleepy which is good because at least he’s not going in circles; but I think that is only a result of the initial increased dosage.
    Drowsiness is a side effect of some anti-seizure medications. This is because they work by calming the brain, so you can expect Milo to be more sleepy long-term if potassium bromide (which I know nothing about) is one of them.

    I am glad you know that now about valium.
