Monitoring your cat’s seizure meds just got easier.

Managing a pet with epilepsy or seizures can be a challenge. Drugs and blood tests can be expensive, time consuming, and stressful for you and your pet. Because of these difficulties, few epileptic pets receive the treatment and follow up care they desperately need. We’re committed to making your pet’s seizure medication monitoring more affordable and convenient with our Seizure Tracker test panels.    

Our Seizure Tracker test panels are carefully designed by our team of veterinarians and experts to precisely target and track your dog or cat’s therapeutic blood levels. 

By performing these tests in the comfort and safety of your own home, your pet is less likely to experience stress and anxiety, both potent seizure triggers. 

Same veterinarian-trusted lab tests in the comfort of your home.

Keppra (levetiracetam)
Keppra is a new generation antiepileptic drug that is being used in dogs and cats suffering from epilepsy and seizure disorders. Most pets will need to have their therapeutic levels checked every three to six months. 
In general, blood samples should be collected as close to the next dose (trough) as possible. For pets on sustained-release formulations, the blood sample should be collected a minimum of 12 hours after the last dose. Some veterinarians may request additional tests (peak and trough) based on your pet’s condition. Analysis is performed by liquid chromatography. Because this is a highly specialized test, it is available only on certain days.

Phenobarbital
Because it can cause side effects such as liver disease and depression, phenobarbital levels should be monitored regularly, typically every three to six months.
Either a peak level (2 hours after pill) or trough level (just before the next dose) are recommended. Most veterinarians prefer to measure peak level to reduce the risk of drug side effects. 
If you adjust your pet’s phenobarbital levels, be sure to measure drug levels again in two to four weeks. 

Potassium bromide (KBr)
Potassium bromide is often used in pets with epilepsy if side effects occur with other drugs, particularly phenobarbital. It may be administered in combination with other treatments.
Blood samples may be obtained at any time.

Zonisamide
Zonisamide is another new generation antiepileptic medication used in dogs and cats. Most pets will need to have their therapeutic levels checked every three to six months. 

In general, blood samples should be collected as close to the next dose (trough) as possible. Some veterinarians may request additional tests (peak and trough) based on your pet’s condition. Analysis is performed by liquid chromatography. Because this is a highly specialized test, it is available only on certain days.
