People's (usually children's) epilepsy has been controlled with something like the ketogenic diet. The diet is very low in carbohydrates and higher in fat (somewhat like Atkins). It often controls epilepsy when nothing else will. OTOH that's people not dogs. But it would be interesting if that helped anyway. It wouldn't be a cheap diet, obviously. The first diet was a vegetarian diet. I don't think there is any way that would work.

Sorry about the medical issued, but in response to your comment about the expense of homemade dog food....my Mom and Dad have been feeding me and the Boo, home cooked food for years. My Dad buys chicken legs and thighs and can usually catch them on sale for 69 cents a pound. He roast them until they are tender and bones them out be sure to watch for that needle bone in the leg. (save the broth, remove the oil after it sets up in the frig) Each meal We get a portion of chicken, with add rice, oats, and assorted mixed veggies (sometimes canned some times table left overs and sometimes fresh) And then some of the broth from the roasting is added. and any supplements I need. The Boo and I love it and are extremely healthy. Dad says it runs bout $10.00 a week, which is less than the chemical, by-products from commercial foods. But now that The Boo has gone home to God the food should last longer...until we get another buddy for me.

Max's raw diet is meat, bone and organs with virtually zero carbs. He was an extremely nervous dog and on raw noticeably calmed down but he had stopped having seizures years before he went on raw. I feed Max for about $20-25 a month, 20 pounds of meats and organs.

If uncomfortable feeding raw then you can mix 3 pounds of meat/fish/egg/dairy/organ with 1 pound of low carb veggies with a source of calcium and that works too. That would feed a 50 pound dog for 3-4 days. Here is more info on that sort of thing.

Why are you to give to the dog a mode vegetarian? The beans are for the people and the sheep. Why do you want to give to the plants with a dog? Give to the dog a meat qu' it n' did not eat front, like ox. Ox flow during a few weeks and to see s' it ya of the allergies.

Chicken liver is very good food but should be a small part of the diet.

To add to the recipe above, 3 pounds of meaty stuff like chicken, beef, pork AND fatty fish, eggs, dairy include about 10% of that as any sort of liver + 1 pound of mixed veggies. Then add in a source of calcium at about 900 mg per pound of food. A 1/2 teaspoon of powdered eggshell works great and is free if you are feeding egg.

Liver is very rich and causes loose stool for one thing!

I think I forgot my source for the recipe. Here it is, take out any pesky spaces.
