I have a near 5 year old maltese - 5 lbs. He started having

I have a near 5 year old maltese - 5 lbs. He started having seizures 2 weeks ago - tonic clonic and difficult to get under control. Has needed anesthesia to stop seizures. He is now on Phenobarbitol and Zonisamide. On Sat eve he got into the garbage (the phenobarb has made him a food fanatic). I cannot tell you what he ate or did not eat. Monday went to vet as he was lethargic and "wobbly" when walking. No vomiting or diarrhea. Was eating / drinking some but not normally. Stomach was abnormally enlarged. Feces was normal appearing. Monday dx was an ulcer. He was anemic based on prior labs from initial seizures - near 2 weeks prior. X-ray with nothing prominent. No signs of pancreatitis - liver and kidney functions good. Started him on carafate, pepcid and an anitnausea med that is now gone. Today I thought he was getting better as he was up walking around minimally on his own. This evening he will not walk, won't eat or drink, is lethargic, yips when picked up or moves. Eyes are glossy. Stomach is distended but not as it was on Monday. No panting. Urine appears fine, no stool today

My dog, a 7yr Lab with about 100 lb that takes Levocrine1.0

My dog, a 7yr Lab with about 100 lb that takes Levocrine1.0 mg did not want to eat yesterday eveniing. he was a little strange, but nothing that could be a warning. I however saw him laying different than normally. Most of the time, normally he lays down with two legs stretched or completely vertical, with the front legs at either side. I didn't see him laying down on his side at all, instead, it looked like a combination of the two styles. This morning, he didn't wake me up as he does every day. I woke up and told him to come for his morning food. He tried to stood up, but it appeared as if he couldn't stand on his legs, in fact, he walked some yards, but laid down again, I could give him with big efforts, 2 dog aspirinsto mitigate any pain he could be having. He was not complaying of any pain. I took him to emergency services. The veterinary inspected him, he let him do and didn't find anything in his mouth, or his temperature. They told me that they needed to make some tests to be able to diagnose the dog. The dog would have to remain 2 days in the hospital, and the cost of the diagnostic would be about $2.000. Well I couldnt pay that much for the diagnostic, so I ended up taking back the dog to my house. It appears that his problem whatever it is is worsening by the minute. When I went to the hospital, he entered the SUV by himself although with some help. When we came back he couldn't do that, I had to enter him in the car. Getting him out of the car was a big problem, he was having pain when I was trying to hold him inmy arms, he even bit me out of pain. It looks that he can't control his entire left side (legs), it is like he has them rigid and can't stand up. his left paw is bent, rigid, and it causes pain to him when I try to straigthten it.I don't know for sure what could have caused this to him. Last week I took him to the Niagara River to swim there. Could he have got a bacteria? Yesterday, when working in the garage, I lost him of sight for a few minutes, I saw him in the porch after such time. There is the possibility that he could have ran out and come back after being hit by a car, but I have not any sign that that could have happen. Other than that, I don't know of anything that could be causing his condition right now. I have him at home resting, and will try to feed him and give him water the best of my ability. Would you have any indication for me?.
