    A Game Changer

    By JoeG on Dec 15, 2021

    Our 5 year old Shepard Mix started having Seizures all of a sudden when he turned 4. We had him on the 12 hr extended release pill but it was not working good. Switched to the 3x a day pill (This one) and it's been a game changer. Absolutely recommend this medication and I hope your pet has success. It's a commitment to keep this going 3x a day but we are so happy its working.

    It does work

    By Stina on Dec 24, 2021

    My cat has gone over a year without a seizure. She has been on this medication for a year and a half now. It definitely has proven to keep the seizures at bay.

    Love this product!! Highly recommend!

    By labradorowner on Jun 21, 2021

    My sweet 6 year old Labrador retriever started having seizures out of nowhere. She had two that last 5 minutes and were very severe. We went straight to the vet and they prescribed this medication. She has only had one since then (3 months ago is when she started the medicine) and it’s because I missed a pill, as she takes it 3 times daily every 8 hours. It was my fault! I am so thankful this medication worked for our sweet girl. I would highly recommend anyone with a dog that has seizures asking their vet about this medication! Works wonders, and I’m so thankful for Chewy’s low prices as this is a lifelong medication!

    Decreased frequency for seizures

    By Levetiracetam on Jul 24, 2020

    My pup was having seizures every two to three weeks. This was the first medicine that he was put on. It helped decrease the frequency of the seizures to every six to eight weeks but not the intensity. He had to be put on another medication to supplement.
