Hello. I'm sorry your pet isn't well. Would you mind telling me more about him. Age, breed, previous health issues?
Has he been fully vaccinated against Parvo virus? Are you noticing any blood in his vomit or stool?
Good to hear that he's vaccinated. Unfortunately, vomiting and a lack of interest in food could be something more serious than just constipation. Does he like to chew on things or eat non-food items?
What type of food does he like to eat?
How long has he been vomiting and not wanting to eat? What would he have access to in the yard that he may have swallowed? Rocks? Sticks? Plastics? Rodent or ant bait?
I'm sorry to say, but this sounds quite serious. I would recommend getting him to a veterinary clinic right away. If there is a blockage, whether it be from a foreign object or feces he needs medical attention right away. Animals can become dangerously dehydrated when they haven't eaten or drank and are losing fluids through vomiting.
Good luck. I hope you are able to get him in today and that he gets better. Rotties are sweet pups.
