Smart packs have some good supplements for heaves. Can't remember what I bought but check them out if you can purchase from there.
I second no round bales, keep it scattered in a bucket or on HARD ground to keep their heads down for drainage etc. Soaked if the supplements don't work. If I were you I'd feed soaked pellets and very limited hay, only enough to keep his guts going
By looking at him I'd say he's had them longer than they are telling you and it's pretty severe if he's had adequate nutrition. He is pretty ribby and that's a tell tell sign of a bad case.
Are you sure you want to keep him? Since they didn't disclose, and not sure if you agreed on an as is, you probably have a leg to stand on legally.
It is a good thing you are so far up north. Nice long winters which really helps them out. Just try and keep him out of the barn as much as possible.
