I can't upload the videos as getting the links was hard enough...

This is Rio, my 3 (?) year old neutered male. He was totally fine earlier in the night, but I looked in their cage to find him just laying at the bottom. His back left leg wasn't working, and his right one was very tired. He tried to eat, but his (f, same age) roomie attacked him a bit, not letting him eat. I've noticed recently she has been a bit more aggressive to him, but I know that he does get to eat at least some. I picked him up with the food dish so I could help him and to start seeing what the issue is. He... Dunked his face in...
I took them both out, put her in the traveling pouch, cleaned him off quickly, and ran down to my parents. They sat with him feeding him yogurt treats and dried fruits. He vomited at least twice on my mom, his eating was strange. His chews were slow, he was dropping a lot of pieces. Seemed very exausted in general, shaking a lot as well.
We talked and watched him, then I went to prepare the traveling cage for him (to separate the two), including Rio with their normal sleeping pouch and water dispenser (Snowbell, the roomie, gets to sleep in the traveling pouch in the big cage, along with a petri dish of water).
When I retrieved him, his legs were doing much better and seemed better (it was maybe an hour over all hanging with my parents).
His back left leg originally barely functioned, but now he is able to walk better, but grip strength isn't really there. His right leg he can walk on fine and I'm not sure about the grip strength on that one.
I got a jar kid upside down and put a small amount of yogurt, along with (cut up) cherry tomatoes, bluberries, and a piece of a Clementine. I have his pouch touching the bottom of the cage, and the water is low enough where he only has to walk (not xlimb) over. He's never had any issues before. I know I haven't cut their nails recently but I have a feeling that's not what caused this...

He needs to be seen by a vet asap.

Don't allow them to give an enema. Looks and sounds like he is constipated. Give him some pumpkin and he needs water. No tomatoes, or oranges. Only watery fruits.

Keep him warm. They can't eat or drink if they're cold. Try one or all of the following: watered Pedialyte, honey water, coconut water (no diet or anything with sugar substitutes)

Find a vet in your area that sees gliders:
