when my dogs are off their food I know something isn't right..If it were me, I'd be going to the vets or ER, he could have an obstruction which could be life threatening.

You hate being overly cautious but what you describe are symptoms of an obstruction....There is "care credit" if you don't have the money to pay for the visit....it is credit available on the spot at animal ERs.

With little pups things can go south very quickly.

I would take him today and parvo virus test him, regardless of vaccines. Obstructions present 99% of the time with lots of irretracible vomiting and rarely diarrhea (I have yet to meet the 1% but I'm sure it's out there). Vaccines aren't perfect and they don't always work. If he just had a little vomit and diarrhea without lethargy and anorexia, I would have other advice as watching my personal dogs, well there's always somebody having vomit or diarrhea (because my fiancÚ feeds them half a pizza, etc ).
Many regular vets are open on Saturday mornings, Im Heading to work now

The vet just told you it is not an obstruction, could be Parvo, and to find a vet that is open Saturday morning.
Where are you located?
