You should take your new puppy to the vet for a check up right away!
That is not normal not peeing that long!

I think you should use the vet near your home, to get a second opinion from.
I would not use the breeder vet if it was me.

I would give your local vet a call, he might also be still adjusting and a little traumatized from the flight. Explain the situation to the vet and see if they want you to bring him in.

Think of it this way. What would you do for a human? Would you let a human go without peeing for almost 2 days? No you would get them to the hospital. Same is true for an animal!

You should take the pup to your own vet within the first week of having him, regardless. That's just good practice. Might as well do it now.

24 hours without urinating, is extremely problematic. Is it possible you are missing his pees? Is he ever left on a carpet while you are not looking?

we have checked every carpet for accidents and find nothing, when he does finally go it is a very long urination! I will call my vet tomorrow. He is finally eating more so maybe that will help.

I was not able to pee for almost 2 days, and I was stuck on an airplane runway for 6 hours and was not able to get home! We had stay over night in a hotel and I thought I was going to dies. I had to go ER when I finally did get home!! The puppy has to be feeling awful too.
