You dont happen to have any of the pups toys laying around that is missing a whole bunch of stuffing do you? This sounds kinda like what happened to ginger when she was a pup.

I may have an idea of what it could have been.. There was one night that I left the plastic base to his crate at my moms house. So I slid a piece of carpet in there so he didn't have to sleep on steel bars for one night. I caught him pulling some carpet strained up on the piece that was in his crate..

It sounds like parvo or a blockage. Since the puppy tested negative I'm leaning towards blockage, especially with the lack of eating and feces. If I were you I would be at the emergency vet to see if they can get an ultrasound done. If it's a blockage then more then likely surgery will be the only option.

He has an appt first thing tomorrow morning at his vet. Considering this just started sunday, do you think he will be ok sleeping overnight? I just spent $600 at the ER last night and all it did was basically get me a Parvo test

You could try Activated Charcoal...this will neutralize gas build up, help with vomiting and diarrhea.

Fast him, whatever is going on the body needs to rest from trying to digest food.

Coconut water to replenish electrolytes and slippery elm to sooth the irritated GI tract....give him about 1/2 cup of coconut water, then switch to reg. water (filtered or distilled better)...depending on what he is holding down...you would only want to use the CW 2-3x in a day or 4 but reduce to 1/4c.

If it is a blockage, even a few hours without vet care can kill.
The last thing you need to do is stick charcoal or any other home remedy down the puppy.
