Hi, sorry if this post is long and i apologize for my english in advance, the love of my life is a cute male golden, hes 2 years old and 6 months

5 days ago he started vomiting at night for no reason so i rushed him to the vet, they gave him an x-ray and some vomiting medication, the X-ray showed a small bone-like object in his intestines, i i kept taking him to the vet for the next 2 days, 2 times a day for medication and fluids because he refused to eat or drink anything at all, then he suddenly pooped after not having done so for 4 days, and the object came out in the stool, they gave him another x-ray to make sure and also an ultrasound to make sure hes fine, and according to them everything checks out and he was supposed to be fine, however it's been 3 days since his last visit to the vet, he still absolutely refuses to eat or drink, i have to force feed him with a syringe (yogurt mixed with honey and potatoes, sometimes ground chicken) thats what the vet recommended, he tries to poop when i take him for walks but is unable to, as soon as he tries he just sits down or refuses to move as if hes feeling pain on the inside, he sometimes plays when he see other dogs and runs around just fine, however he looks uneasy at home, rarely moves around and never plays.. any ideas? please help!, i took him to 2 different vets to make sure they weren't miss-diagnosing, hes not neutered yet, also i don't have enough money left to take him to the vet many more times, need to wait till the 1st of may, also he stopped vomiting around 2 days ago, but the main concern right now is that he is unable to poop and still refuses to eat/drink (he is also not dehydrated) help please

This really does require a vet exam. He needs another set of xrays to make sure there is not something else in his GI tract. You really can't wait until the 1st of May. He could be very ill by then.

The bone could have splintered and gotten caught in his colon. This happened to my family dog growing up, he ate a hambone, and it splintered in his large intestine. He would squat and try to poop, but obviously nothing would come out. He ended up needing an enema to flush the splintered bone fragments out of his colon. I would specifically ask about splintered bone fragments if I were you.

Best of luck!!

Hi guys thanks for the quick replies, he started whining as if he wanted to go for a walk, i took him for a walk and about 10 mins later he pooped just fine(it was huge), the stool looked completely normal, not too hard and not too soft.. he also wagged his tail for the first time in almost a week, i'll take him to the vet tomorrow as you guys recommended and i'll also get his blood tested, thanks alot i feel much better now. still i'll update you if i get to know anything
