Lab/Pointer mix with multiple problems

Help! Our 3 year old male Lab/Pointer mix has a variety of symptoms. He started with shaking when he came in at night or when chasing his ball. A few days later, he started drinking a lot and urinating excessively. A day or so later, he stopped eating. Took him to the vet, ran some tests and found that his calcium level was 13 (norm is 8 to 11). Noticed his glands in his neck were swollen and also his tonsils. He was put on antibiotics, pain killer for the sore throat and a diuretic to reduce the calcium level. The glands never really shrank and his energy level is still high even though he rarely eats and has lost a little weight.
