So should I treat for both ? Ive got interpet anti internal bacteria+,methylene blue and levamisol on hand at the moment ... Which would be a better option since I'm not sure which 1 to start issue to start with?

He also looks very old (note the nuchal hump) and overweight. Sorry to say, but my guess is that he is near the end of his life.

That's odd he shouldn't be at the end of his life span he's only about 7months to a year old could it not be the angle of the pic? I'll put some more up now now .....I started treating with the interpet internal bacteria and he seems to be a bit more perky today i started treating it yesterday and his poop is solid white not not translucent anymore is that a good sign?
