This from the Vet:
So we are missing something here! Toby's Bromide level has taken a significant nose dive:

Bromide level = < 0.3 mg/mL

RESULT VERIFIED BY REPEAT ANALYSIS
BROMIDE THERAPEUTIC RANGE:
0.8-2.0 mg/mL (80-200 mg/dL) in combination with phenobarbital.
1.0-3.0 mg/mL (100-300 mg/dL) as sole anticonvulsant (without
phenobarbital).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dosage 600 mg twice daily with 2 grains of Pheno; 97# German Wirehaired Pointer; 9 yrs Old
Canide +1/3 can Pedigree. Lots of water.
this was the test at 90 days and should have shown steady state condition.

Any Idea what has happened?
Does it just go away sometimes?
tnx
