Can you share video of his current condition?
It sounds like he's in critical condition. The best approach right now would be to try to find an ER hospital that can examine and treat him. Failing this, I would add 5 drops of honey or pancake syrup to 10 drops of warm water and use an eye dropper or syringe to give a few drops in to his mouth and see if this helps his condition. It's possible for small creatures to become hypoglycemic if he's not eaten well since this morning. That said, we must be worried about conditions like upper respiratory infections and cancer when pocket pets become ill to this degree. I'll be happy to help if you would like my assistance in helping you find an ER clinic. I'll need your location.
