Will my dog still have seizures while they are taking Pexion?

What will my dog's life be like on Pexion?
As dogs with primary epilepsy are healthy in all other respects there is no reason why your dog should not go on to live a full and happy life. Occasionally it may not be possible to control a dog’s seizures regardless of which medications they receive. Your vet will be able to provide information on what you can do if this is the case.
