Simon is 13 months, been ill since last night, he had a mouthful of food this morning and a sip of milk. He looks normal but is hardly moving, he's not passing any urine or stools, there was a little bit of yellow fluid by him I couldn't tell if it was sick or stool. He goes out very rarely

Thanks so much for your very helpful reply.
Simon may be dehydrated or hypoglycemic.
Rub a drop of pancake syrup or honey into his gums.It should perk him up within minutes.
Feel all over his body for any wounds or pain response. Look in his mouth for a stuck item sores or any abnormalities. Check under tongue, roof and between lips and teeth
Drain the water from a can of tuna into a bowl and see if he will lick it up for hydration.If he does, offer the tuna.
Warm some canned food to bring out the aroma.
He can have more milk if he will drink it.
Please let me know how Simon is doing. I will be here all day to help you.
