Do you mind sharing? This may help me to assist you further in knowing what trauma was sustained and where. Obviously with injury sustained over the back end, we must worry about pain (which it sounds like he's experiencing) but if the injury was bad enough it also could have caused bladder and intestinal injury which would keep him from wanting to eat or drink. In cases like these, ER visits are warranted otherwise the pet may not survive.
