MY DOG IS DYING! - I had him seen by over 10 different vets and nobody can figure out whats wrong with him.

I need the Dr. House of Vets to help figure this one out.

I have posted the entire history as well as lab results, ct-scans and xrays on a website . See

Can anybody figure out what he has or give me any suggestions on what to do next?
