he's four days old. he was fine up until about 3 am today. he was stiff and couldn't move lying on his side, trouble breathing, labored, sounds strained, his jaw is so tensed up we cant get his mouth opened to give him a little water. slight foaming at the mouth

My gut reaction is Neonatal Tetanus. If this is the case he is going to need the services of a veterinary hospital to survive. I'm so sorry....
