Have your vet refer you to a veterinary internist

To diagnose idiopathic epilepsy, known causes, such as certain diseases, must first be ruled out. The diagnosis should be based on your dog's medical history, a neurological examination and laboratory tests (blood and/or urine)

I have a Shih Tzu x Maltese that started having seizures when he was about two years old. He had them off and on for the next four years, then just stopped. He was never on medication because the Vet did not want to put him on anything as they were quite random. It is really hard to diagnose Epilepsy, they have to try and eliminate other things that could cause seizures, like environmental things.
