Is valium typically used to treat seizure disorders for cats? My cat's blood work is fine but she is having seizures so is on valium.

get the liver panels. ive had epilepsy my entire life and ive taken pretty much every antiseizure med on the market (the same ones they give to kitties) with the exception of one or 2, they cause liver problems.
diazepam (valium) is metabolized in the liver!
GET THE LIVER PANELS!
good pt but .... just a FYI that I just learned is the same in humans and cats / dogs ... metabolized there does not = can damage ... I too thought that till my vet set me strait about my dogs antihystamine ... see the dog HAS liver issues and I was leary of continuing a drug that the liver broke down...
