Pomeranian Seizures after coughing - Please help!

I have a 13 year old female Pomeranian. She experience small 10 second seizures at times after she drinks water. She drinks alot of water and I have raised her water bowl so that she doesn’t have to reach down so far. Our Vet took a blood sample and stated her liver enzymes were high.  She has had boiled Chicken for her dinner for several years. The Vet says she does not need protein in her diet due to her age and her liver condition. Recently, two weeks ago, she had a seizure which scared me; she was lethargic and was staring into space for several seconds while I held her safely and let her know I was there with her. The Vet has her on antibiotics (amoxicillin) and Lactulose. He states that the ammonia given off by the liver was going into her system and causing the seizures possibly. She was doing much better for a week and a half. Tonight, she is appearing to exhibit the same conditions. Her diet now consists of Science Diet L/D with carrots, a few bone treats. He gave me a bottle of Phenobarbital but she is not on that yet. I need a second opinion to find out what is wrong so o can effectively treat her condition. He wants to take a bile test.  He also mentioned maybe she has Cushing disease. I am lost. Any advice will be appreciated.
