What do I give home to relieve it?
He's usually raw fed but not interested in that at all.
TIA

Cut out all bone content, feed liver (a small amount) stand back and wait grin

But if he is feeling poorly with it straight to Vets

As above and find getting him running works to
Sometimes I find cooking couple bits of chicken tempt him to eat

Thank you all.
I did try the vet but they only had emergency apps and it's not that.
Based on his other symptoms, a friend who is a dog professional thinks his anal glands might be blocked.
He's now eating sardines in olive oil with some carrot and tucking into it nicely. I will get some liver too for later and offer him food little and often tonight.
Vets tomorrow though if still no poo.

Do I give the liver raw?
And how much is not too much please?

I took dog to the vet yesterday who checked his anal glands (not impacted but she released them anyway if that's the correct terminology).
He has been eating since Tuesday evening, small amounts of sardines, offal and cooked chicken.
Drinking and weeing ok but still no poo as far as I'm aware (the garden is too dark and the torch too feeble to check but nothing on any walks.
Whe do I go back to the vet do you think?
He seems ok in himself. Not overly sprightly but then he is a very chilled dog normally.
TIA

Is he feeling better? More himself?

Yes! Looking mischeivieous at the moment which is a lovely sight to see [happy]
