What Is Causing My Chihuahua to Be Lethargic?

This is the 4th time my 4 lb chihuahua has become lethargic. He is fine one min and the next, he can’t stand, eyes bug and ears pinned back. When I try to stand him up, his feet are spread and he is very unstable and can not seem to walk. When holding him or laying him down, his front legs are stiff. He also startles very easy. The first time this happen I took him to the emergency room. They gave him IV fluids and ran tests but found nothing. This cost a small fortune that I can not afford. I’m worried sick .

4 instances of the same thing and your vet doesn’t see a pattern!? Go back to your vet and ask him to rule out Epilepsy or other dieseases of the nervous system. Take a video of the next attack to show the vet. Ask for a second opinion if you aren’t getting anywhere.
