Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about Gator. How long ago did he eat this object?
It appears that you aren't online to discuss Gator right now. I am going to be signing off for the night but will be back on in the morning.
In the meantime, given your description I am very concerned that your dog has a foreign body obstruction. Signs of a foreign body obstruction include vomiting and decreased appetite. Even if he is able to eat some food and have bowel movements, we can have partial obstructions where some food is still able to pass. Your pup needs to have an x-ray of the abdomen performed to evaluate for signs of the foreign body and depending on if there is one present and the location, surgery or endoscopy may be needed to remove the object.
