I know all to well how that feels, friend... I wish any of us could help. I was in the same situation five years ago. The only thing to do is see if a vet is available, if you can't afford it apply for Care Credit, or go to local shelters to see if you can get help. Do you know the cause of the difficulty?

If he's having a hard time breathing, make sure his airway stays clear.

Don't give him medications for pain as most are either toxic or don't work.

If you can't get help, stay with him, keep him warm, try to get him to drink, and give him your love. Sometimes that's all we can do. If he passes, he will know he was cared about till the end. (sending hugs)
