Urinalysis definately needed to check for crystals, stones & bacterial infections. Also at his age the urine specific gravity should be looked at as a guage for kidney function.

Was there a Thyroid hormone T4 level checked in the blood work? Sometimes that is a separate test.

The howling & fur pulling could be indicating Thyroid issues, which are treatable.
