Some cats and dogs with epilepsy can benefit from the anticonvulsant Levetiracetam, which can be combined with other medications to control seizures.
Epilepsy causes seizures in dogs and cats that can be difficult to control. In many cases, a single medication is not enough to control the condition. If that’s the case for your pet, your veterinarian may prescribe Levetiracetam. This anticonvulsant is often used as an add-on medication to other seizure control prescriptions. Levetiracetam works in combination with phenobarbital and bromides to help treat epilepsy and give your pet a better quality of life. Levetiracetam is also prescribed to control seizures associated with hepatic encephalopathy. Have questions about Levetiracetam? Just click on the “Ask a Question” tab above.
