Have the vet check him out asap!

Likely a medical issue if the change is sudden and extreme. How old is he? Has he been exposed to other dogs or standing water? Has he been dewormed?

Depending on his age and immunization history he could be coming down with a serious illness. He could also have swallowed something sharp or round and injured his stomach/intestines or blocked them.

The only way to know for sure is to take him to the vet.

How is your little guy doing?

If I were to guess, your vet probably found that he had eaten something he shouldn't have (I noticed your shoe eating post). It is not uncommon, the cocker spaniel I grew up with ate a rock, had to have surgery, came home and ate another rock. After the second rock, my parents replaced the rocks with gravel.

Hoping things are going well.
