Hi there and thank you for your question.

You can absolutely NOT give the distilled water in any way other than oral. But you can give a few drops every few minutes so that it is a slow trickle orally. That is all you can do. Giving the distilled water could be disastrous... it does not have the right electrolytes and is not sterile. Get to your vet to get more of the proper IV fluids as soon as you can, but please do not ever try to substitute. Good luck!
