One of my boys feels really cold, his breathing is laboured, and he won't accept food or drink.

I assume this is a respiratory problem but I've never had anything this sudden or serious before.
He has been losing weight, but this is totally unexpected pale

I feel terrible for not noticing this.

I've got no way of getting to a vet... pale

Probably pneumonia.... he needs to be seen by a vet. Sadly when they get to this stage sometimes it's just wrong to think they are going to make it, but medicine will help him feel comfortable. He does need meds, a steroid injection for anti inflammatory, and antibiotics such as Baytril.

I did get him to the vets but sadly he had to be put to sleep. He had a mass of lumps in his stomach and there was nothing but pain for him.
