Help! My Dog has Pancreatitis and is not doing well!

Hello, I have a miniature Manchester Terrier who is 11 years old, has diabetes and was diagnosed with pancreatitis. I took him to the vets, and they gave him IV during the day for 3 days, and yesterday I brought him home, and the vet let us take the IV with us. We are currently on our second day of 24hr IV for him, however he is not doing well. His stomach is VERY sensitive to touch, and he is sleeping all day.

The vet said we can take him outside to go the bathroom, we leave  the IV in all day.The vet did give him antibiotics and has checked his blood sugar, and he is 291 blood sugar, so she decided not to give him insulin. It seemed he has been getting worse, and since yesterday he is colder to touch, and much more sensitive. I can not even pick him up because he cries out in pain.

Any advice would be helpful, we are not sure what else to try. He had VERY little water this morning, and has not eaten because I was told not to feed him. I am worried because he cries out whenever I touch him on his stomach or his backside, and also his rectum is excreting very small amount of blood and clear fluid, however this might be because it is the IV since he is not urinating a lot. His stomach is VERY large(looks inflamed) , but that might be because the IV also, I am not sure.

Any advice please, the vet does not know really what to do.
