Hello and thank you for using this site to help you.

Unfortunately such bones can be very dangerous to a dog. They can splinter and poke a hole in the intestines causing poising to the dog or they can become a blockage of the intestines. The fact that he is not eating and is vomiting , he is actually showing 2 symptoms of an obstruction. The would require surgery. It is strongly advised that you seek a hands on exam by your Vet.

Here is more on obstruction https://www.petplace.com/article/dogs/pet-health/gastric-stomach-foreign-body-in-dogs/
