Unfortunately, this isn't something you can get diagnosed over the internet. Very few of our members are vets so if he worsens, you need to find a vet quickly.

When you say 'hard of breath' do you mean he's having trouble catching a breath, as well, or just as if in pain? If he's just in pain, he maybe overdid it yesterday enough to be super-stiff and will recover with time and rest.

If he's having trouble moving air, though, it's much more serious and could be almost anything--from having aspirated water at the beach, to a twisted gut, to something unrelated that is just coincidentally flaring up. It's especially troubling that he's taking no food or water. Has he been outside? Is he peeing and pooping normally?
