Just gave him the first one, he didn't act out and took it well. However, its been 30 minutes and he hasn'y tried to have a bowel movement. If he doesn't pass the bones I'll take him when the vet open tomorrow. Thanks for all the replies, and any recommendations or thoughts are still appreciated.

It might take a while for the enema to work on what is practically stone hard, almost non absorbent mass. Hopefully he will never have access to cooked bones again.

Good night. I will check on your progress later, and tomorrow.

It really sounds like a blockage to me. Cooked bones are no good. Best of luck at the next vet!

I gave him an enema and took him out after an hour, he was still straining, constantly trying and changing his spot, moving around and trying again. I can see something trying to come out that's pretty big, but no luck. After four hours pass I'll give him a second enema.

He's now vomited a total of 4 times, once yellow bile with foam, and the rest his dry food that he ate later. He's still belching and straining and I can still see the object trying to come out. It seems like there is some progress but he still can't get it out.

I gave him the second enema and 25 minutes later he tried to poop again, still belching with no success. It's now 4:34am and I've given up on sleeping. I'll see what I can do in the morning, for now I just have to wait and hope he can pass it by himself.

Hope it'll come out soon, must be very painful for him.

Poor little guy. It sounds like a very severe blockage. I hope the next vet can help.

The enemas don't seem to work. Would feeding him something with high fiber be good? Although he doesn't have an appetite at the moment.

Here's Franco when I first found him. He was kept outside in the dust and heat before I took him in. He was running into traffic when I stopped to get him with his paws all bloody at the bottom, maybe from scratching something to try to escape. He's about a year and a half old, not sure of the breed.

EDIT:

After taking him in I posted signs and tweeted and Instagrammed missing dog, it's been almost 3 weeks with no calls, even though my tweets got retweeted almost 40 times.

I wouldn't feed him anything, if he's got a blockage it'll just be more waste material behind the instruction not able to pass though. Give him as much water as he'll drink.

He's a very cute little dog, and is luck to have had someone as caring as you find him! Hopefully he'll pass whatever it is, but if he doesn't by the time the vet opens please take him in.
