Customer Question

My dog started acting out of the ordinary today he woke up earlier than usual this morning and was sitting as if he wanted to throw up. He drank water ate three pieces of kibble and the started to shiver as if he had an upset tummy. He ended up falling asleep a little while later. He slept good peed but has not pooped since last night around 8. He went for a few walks after waking up this afternoon, we played in the backyard etc. so he ate finally around 6:30, and is sleep but has aweful has! He really isn't a gassy dog but now he is having bad gas and no poop. Help! He's a 4 yr old American hairless terrier.
