Description

Pexion is a new drug used to control epileptic fits (seizures) in dogs. The active ingredient is called imepitoin and it is thought to have reduced side effects and therefore possibly be safer than the standard traditional treatments. Pexion is given twice daily and acts rapidly to control seizures. It begins working in a few hours and after about 3 days a steady state has been achieved. This helps your vet to find the correct dose for your dog, which always takes a little while to be evaluated for any particular patient. The aim is to find the lowest dose which will reduce the frequency of fits to zero or to a very low level.

It can be found that some dogs will have a slight increased thirst or hunger, or be slightly sedated when they first start taking Pexion. These effects are usually less obvious when compared with other treatments, and tend to disappear anyway once a dog has adjusted to being on regular medication. Pexion does not cause the liver damage which has sometimes been associated with other treatments. Due to the mode of excretion, Pexion is also safe for animals with reduced kidney function.

So far, this product has really helped my dog not have seizures. He was having seizures about every 3 weeks, and so far, on Pexion, we've gone almost three without a seizure.

35 Not recommended for dogs with cluster seizures

By on 12 December 2017

My dog was prescribed these. They caused her to have seizures every day and the vet recommended I have her pts. Then I found out the European Medicines Agency do not recommend these for dogs that suffer with clusters. It can make them worse. I took my dog off pexion and the seizures stopped. Please be aware of this as some vets are not. Please research and if your dog is getting even if it’s gradually, please speak to your vet. Otherwise these are good for dogs with primary epilepsy.

How many months on a repeat prescription for pexion

  • VioVet Staff

How much treatment is allowed on a prescription for Pexion is pretty much down to your vet. Most vets will write out a prescription which allows for 3 - 6 months worth of medication. Some will only allow a month, some will put repeats on the prescription which will go on for much longer. It is down to your vet. We can only supply what has been authorised.
