No - you will be ok: Keppra (levetiracetam) does not affect the kidneys much, it is predominantly metabolized in the blood.
A horseshoe kidney has a different shape, but it is not especially susceptible to the toxic effects of medications.
You should not be concerned about the effects of keppra (levetiracetam) on your kidney.
