My wiener dog who 18 months will not pee or poop now and shakes and walks with his tail down. Should I take him back to the vet?

Hi there, my name is ***** ***** I would be happy to answer your question. When you say he will not pee or poop, is he going outside and straining to do either, or is he not even trying? How long since the last time he went potty? Is he eating or drinking?
