Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheaper then phenobarbital My chihuahua has been on this for a little over a year and did great until recently. If you can’t give three times a day this isn’t the medicine for your fur baby. Mine hasn’t had a seizure since we added potassium bromide to his meds. But it worked better then phenobarbital did then like I said we had to add another medicine to his regular meds. Also didn’t cause him to gain lots of weight and be sluggish like he was on the phenobarbital.

How is this administered to my dog? Is it allowed to be chewed, or do I have to somehow force the whole pill down my dog's throat? I'm not sure how tablets are administered to dogs.

Asked by: leahh52496
I’ve never seen these in chewable form, I slip it in some wet food and spoon feed it. Just a little wet, and then an extra spoon to help the medicine go down. I use a low fat digestion wet.... There’s also treats called “pill pockets”, tho unsure of the ingredients...

 Can this prescription be given every 12 hours instead of every eight hours?  If so, should the dosage be adjusted

Asked by: Megan
Give this medication exactly as directed by your veterinarian. If you don't understand the instructions, ask the pharmacist or veterinarian to explain them to you. The exact dosage for your pet varies on many factors, including the severity of the condition, and will ultimately be determined by your veterinarian.

I personally use Keppra XR.   I take it once daily.  My 14 yo labradoodle was recently started on the XR, but is supposed to take it q 12 hrs.  Is the frequency different for dogs?

Asked by: Donnavon
My cat gets it every 8hrs so I'd assume it's different for dogs as well

My dog is a chihuahua 10 lbs. What is the smallest dose I can give her.

Asked by: Dolores
Thank you for your question. Dosage is often started at 10 mg/lb (20 mg/kg) by mouth three times daily (every 8 hours). Your DVM will determine the appropriate dose based on your pet's seizure condition.

What is Levetiracetam?

Levetiracetam is an anticonvulsant medication that treats seizures in dogs and cats. It can be used by itself or with other anticonvulsant medications. Levetiracetam is in certain cases safer for pets to use than other anticonvulsant medications because it passes through the urine instead of being broken down by the liver or metabolized by the kidneys. Levetiracetam requires a prescription from your veterinarian and is sold by the tablet.

For:

Dogs and Cats

Benefits:

  • Helps control seizures
  • Increases your pet's quality of life
  • Can be combined with other anticonvulsant medications
  • In certain cases, safer to use than other anticonvulsant medications
  • Sold by the tablet

How does Levetiracetam work?

Levetiracetam decreases abnormal excitement in nerves in the brain and as a result, reduces seizures.

Cautions:

Even though Levetiracetam isn't metabolized by the kidneys, tell your veterinarian if your pet has kidney disease. The dosage may have to be reduced as a result. Do not stop giving Levetiracetam suddenly unless directed by your veterinarian. Suddenly stopping dosages can result in your pet experiencing a seizure. Tell your veterinarian if your pet is pregnant or lactating.
