It may be that further investigations can be done. These of course will cost and those costs could be substantial.
Any inflammation from disease injury or tumour etc of the inner ear can interfere with balance.
If lucky is healthy in every other respect ( and initial blood samples to check for any other fundamental underlying disease would be sensible) then it would be sensible to discuss costs and practicalities with the the vet involved or another maybe more senior or specialist vet within the same practice. At this stage then it my be worth asking for a referral for a specialist second opinion.
Good luck
