Hello,

I am sorry to hear you are worried about Mani getting these pills. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

How long ago did he get the pills? How is he acting? Give me a moment to look up these doses in a dog his size.

This dose of levetiracetam could cause vomiting and salivation. However, he just got one dose that is the upper level of the normal dose for a dog his size, so you may not see this.

The dose of Gabapentin is also in the recommended dose range for a dog her size. You might see some drowsiness and that is the most I would expect. Let me know how she is doing and what else I can answer.
