Are there any vets out there who have tried treating a hen who suffers seizures with Phenobarbital?

    Phenobarbital at the dose rate of 40 mg/kg may be helpful.

    Just considering trying it on Chancie, who has suffered seizures since we got her. A vet suggested it could be used, but hadn't any experience of using it on hens. It's basically the same drug used on humans and some animals like dogs to control epilepsy.
