Default Brain issue?

Just wondering if anyone had any issues with their chihuahuas brain? Every now and again he will jump up and limp around as though he is drunk, he walks sideways, falls over and bumps Into things. Then 5 mins later hes fine?? Any help would be appreciated, vets aren't saying much they've checked him over and his bones are fine. I've showed them videos of it happening and they said it could be a brain issue and he may need referring to a neurologist. Any insight would be appreciated x

Hi, welcome to the forum. It appears that your dog MAY have epilepsy. Did this come on after an injury? Or just appear? Take the video with you to the specialist. It will help the diagnosis. I have a chihuahua with 'focal epilepsy' and is helped with phenobarbital. He/she may not need medication if the seizures only come a month or so apart. If more than that the dog may need medication.
