 13yr old mali sick :(

My mali has been very sluggish last few days...not eating and moves his head side to side every so often...also panting with his mouth open a lot...but I know he’s not too hot. Only thing I can think of is I purchased a hibiscis bush and gave him some flowers from it...could it be pesticides? Or is he just old?

Is dehydration a possibility?

 13yr old mali sick :(

It could be....but I’ve had him for 13 yrs and I have never seen him do this...I injected some baby sweet potatos into his mouth and he did eat that..he just hasn’t been moving much..mainly just his head back and forth (involuntary?)and looks kind of in a trance. I realize also I sprayed bug spray to kill spider close enough to his tank that he could have inhaled some. He seemed a bit more attentive yesterday and this morning...but still hasn’t moved.
