Hi there, I am Dr. Christensen. I am so sorry to hear that your pup is in pain. These signs could be abdominal or back pain. It is difficult to say without a physical exam. Based on the pain when urinating, vomiting, and dark feces it is likely abdominal pain. The signs he is having are very serious He needs veterinary care as soon as possible.

I​f you have an emergency veterinary clinic available I would take him there tonight. If you don't, I would take him in to your regular veterinarian first thing in the morning. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
