This article aims to give the general practitioner a step by step approach to first-line medical management of epilepsy in both cats and dogs. The licensed drugs, bromide and phenobarbital, are discussed in detail with particular reference to the common problems that might be observed. A second article in this two-part series, to be published in a subsequent issue of In Practice, will discuss second-line medical management of epilepsy.
