I am sorry to hear Pixel is not feeling well. The biggest concern I would have is that Pixel has developed pancreatitis. This is inflammation of the pancreas leading to severe gastrointestinal upset, mainly vomiting, which can then be accompanied by pain and lack of appetite as it progresses. This could also just be a gastroenteritis (upset stomach). In order to know what exactly is going on, Pixel would need x-rays and bloodwork. However, treatment could be started just with subcutaneous fluids (fluids under the skin to help rehydrate) as well as anti-vomiting medication. Because we know exactly what happened, I recommend heading to your vet to have him checked out and treated. The earlier the treatment, the better the outcome and less expensive things will be. Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with.
