    He sounds close to death already since his color is turning gray, so I would just try to make him comfortable and keep him warm. If you have electrolytes in water, you can try to carefully give him a few drops at a time with a drop or syringe. How long has he had diarrhea, and what is his age? Could he have become poisoned with chemicals or gotten botulism from eating something bad? It could be almost anything without knowing more details. I'm sorry.
