Exclamation Is vomiting related to constipation?

I've only had my dog, Iroh, for about 2 months. He's a German Shepherd/Husky mix with some other breeds thrown in as well. In the time that I've had him, he's become constipated a couple of different times, but it always resolves itself within 2-3 days without any intervention from me or a vet.
Currently, Iroh has been constipated for about 3 days.
The last time that I fed him was around noon yesterday, and he had a new flavor of wet canned food for the first time mixed in with his dry food (it was beef instead of poultry, but the same brand.)
Last night, at around 9 PM, Iroh coughed a few times and two pieces of dry undigested kibble came out of his mouth. Later, at around 10:30, he actually vomited up about half a cup of kibble. Then, at around 4:30 in the morning, I woke up to the sound of him throwing up the entirety of what I had fed him earlier in the day. (It was more than 12 hours prior at that point.) I could still easily see the round edges of dry kibble as if they hadn't been digested at all.
Is his vomiting likely related to the constipation, and what should I do about one or both problems?

I'd say it's vet time for the constipation. 3 days is a bit long to go without having a bowel movement. I also can't say why he may be vomiting but paired with the constipation I'd worry about some sort of blockage and want him checked out by the vet to be on the safe side if he were my dog.

Once he's cleared by the vet you can give him a couple tablespoons of canned 100% pure pumpkin, per day, to help prevent constipation. Do NOT give him the pumpkin pie filling.

Depending on what food you are feeding it may be contributing to the constipation. Some dogs do best without grains, some do best with grains. None of them need corn in the food, corn is there as a filler and can cause problems with some dogs so it's best to choose a food with no
corn.

Agree its time for your Vet to examine him. It could be nothing, but could also be more serious like perhaps a blockage of some sort.

Vet ASAP, might be a blockage, not just constipation.
