I'm so sorry your little buddy isn't doing well. I agree with the others, it is definitely time to get him to the vet, and QUICKLY! Seizures aren't actually all that common in dogs, and it could be anything really...including things you wouldn't think would be all that big a deal, yet can be fatal for little dogs, such as hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) or dehydration. Please let us know how it goes at the vet, and I'll be keeping your little buddy in my prayers.

I really don't understand when someone, who obviously loves his/her dog, goes to a forum for infomation, when it is really only a vet they should be seeing. If they don't have the money, most vet's will work with you, if you are upfront about the lack of money. This is an emergency and the dog needs to be seen NOW.
