|A 6-month-old, female Cavalier King Charles spaniel exhibited seizures that were difficult to control with standard anticonvulsants over a 12-month period.
The diagnosis of an organic aciduria with excessive excretion of hexanoylglycine was determined when the dog was 20 months old.
Recurrent and cluster seizures were eventually controlled with the addition of levetiracetam to potassium bromide and phenobarbital.
