Q. I have a cockerspainal who is 6 years old and started having seizures two months aga. My vet put him on Keepra but it's not helping . What should I do

A. I would advise going back to your vet and request a change in medications. The two most effective medications today are called - Pexion and Phenobarbital. The first has less side effect but the second is a little more effective.
