I am so sorry your poor dog is so unwell in so many different ways. I am not a vet or medical professional, and I know you are looking for expert guidance here.

I have one question though: what are his blood results re: renal values? Renal failure can cause very many other seemingly unrelated problems, and can sometimes cause seizures and a dementia-like state.

I hope someone will come here and be able to help you. Once, veterinarians used to comment here, but I haven't seen that now for years.
I feel for you and your dog. I hope some help will come. Many blessings to him.
