Hi there. Thanks for the question. Im sorry to hear Diesel isn't feeling well. These clinical signs are very concerning. In such a large dog, the top 2 possibilities are ...

- GDV- gastric dilation and volvulus....and no they don't always look bloated

- a foreign body like a sock, bone, etc that is stuck in the GI tract

Both if these require emergency veterinary care. There us nothing you can do at home. Please go to an emergency vet as soon as possible. I hope this helps. Best of luck.
