Atlas’s seizures

At 8 months old Atlas started having seizures anytime he went to doggie daycare. The vet chalked it up to over excitement and prescribed phenobarbital which worked for awhile but then he started having seizures not only at doggie daycare but whenever we walked into the vet’s office too. His seizures are pretty violent and require a high dose of Valium to bring him back. Now he is having seizures at home which is scary for everyone. They always occur in the middle of him sleeping. He is currently on pheno and kepra which has made this lovable happy guy super lethargic. Recently he had 5 seizures back to back with the longest at 2 minutes and we had to rush him to the vet ER. He stayed the night for much needed observation and we left with a $800 bill. The next morning we took him to a specialist where he suffered another seizure as soon as he walked in and we left with a $800 bill but still no answers. This guy is our baby and the most loveable pup! Even the emergency staff added to his notes “Atlas is a sweet boy!” And he covered the cardiologist tech in tons of kisses while they ran the EKG. We want our baby to be able to be social and meet the people and puppies he so desperately wants to meet but we have had to accept his life as a “house dog” unless we can afford the ability to now see the neurologist. MRI scans alone are $3500. Poor guy is on a regiment of 5 pills a day and requires regular blood work - we just want to find an answer for our baby boy because he deserves the world.
