Thanks for your response. I ended up bringing him into a vet who did a stool analysis (light-colored diarrhea) and determined that there was a presence of harmful bacteria (which are causing it) and a lack of the beneficial digestive bacteria. He was given an antibiotic and we were sent home with some medicine that I will be administering over the next week.

I have a lamp and warm bed set up where he's currently soaking it up and resting. He's drinking water by himself but has been unwilling to eat today. I've been offering him his usual food (Exact) ground up as well as boiled egg white, but I will also give him some boiled egg yolk as well.

There hasn't been any change in his diet or location, so I can't imagine what may have caused this. I actually suspect he may have been consuming his own droppings. His food dispenser is kept clean, though, so I don't know.

I'll keep you posted on his progress. Thanks!
