    I'm sorry but, I think only a vet could save him if it isn't already too late to do so. I think he needs iv's for his dehydration and diarrhea . A vet could tell you if he had something that could be treated or if the kindest thing would be to put him down

    Welcome to BYC - it sounds as if there may be several problems with your rooster culminating with a possible heart involvement.
