Epilepsy treatment for Byuki

Meet Byuki, a 2 years old Border Collie pupp. He's diagnosed with epilepsy since May 2019. In August 2019 he had a several very dangerous seizures but thanks to the vets he made it and was a happy, almost healthy dog (beside the smaller seizures he had 8-10 times a month and little behaviour changes) until the Christmas Day 2019.

He started to have a cluster seizures, which means start and stop, but occur in groups one right after another. It is extremely dangerous for dog's life so we rushed to emergency vet, where they managed to calm him down a little bit and referred us to a specialist in neurology.

That's where the problem starts - all of the neurology tests as MRI or spinal cord fluid tests are very expensive medical examinations. Byuki is a playful, happy dog, loves to play outside and beside his seizures he's completely normal dog.

He's just two and I cannot imagine him passing away, especially when I know he still has a chance to live a normal life. But he needs these tests to make sure what causes his seizures - it could be a brain tumour or something else inside his head or spine. 

Byuki is insured but because of his previous treatment, our insurance company is not going to cover all of the costs of tests as we almost reached an insurance limit. 

Byuki is currently in a very good but also very expensive clinic, where the best specialists try to help him. He has a chance for normal life, I don't want him to lose it.
