Propofol is an anaesthetic agent commonly used for both induction and maintenance of general anaesthesia and has been associated with seizure-like phenomena (SLP) in both veterinary and human medicine. This case report describes an English springer spaniel with no previous history of neurological symptoms, which exhibited SLP after propofol anaesthesia for bronchoscopy. The SLP were refractory to treatment for 13 hours, but steadily improved after administration of phenobarbital and levetiracetam. To the authors’ knowledge, this is the first report of their use to manage SLP.
