First two things I would do....avoid corn and grains in dog food as many dogs have allergy reactions to them and, find a new vet. If he hasn't been able to figure it out in 1 1/2 years, I'd be looking elsewhere for professional help .

Good luck in finding real answers soon .
Looks like thyroid to me too. Kees blood in these dogs and thyroid issues are known with kees. My first kees had very similar looking problems. Only a blood test from the vet can confirm though. Poor dog, must be driving him crazy. I hope they find an answer for him soon.
