Its so difficult to see that happening and feel so very helpless. I can tell you that we have had our girl on Gabapentin to deal with pain from an auto-immune disorder, and for the first two or three days, all she could do was lay in one spot, pretty much all day. She did eventually tolerate it better, fortunately she is off that now, still on very low dose of steroids, but tolerating that, at least for now. Ours loves chicken, and at times when she was sick and would eat nothing, she would still eat some roasted chicken, for awhile only if I hand fed her. We also depended on appetite stimulants for awhile, which really IMO only 'kind of work'. Give him anything he will eat, don't worry about nutrition right now, but you have to try to control weight loss. Once you get him eating again, you can deal with nutrition, but not right now.
You might consider taking him to a specialist, probably an Internist.
