UPDATE on Duncan 4/11/14: 

We brought Duncan to the vet today and they checked out his old exrays which clearly shows a ball lodged in his upper stomach area. They also feel both elbows are dysplastic (meaning his elbows have a structural defect and causing him pain). They are currently taking xrays to determine if he still has the ball in his stomach and if he does, surgery is required since it will not be able to pass through him (it would have already passed if that was possible.)

UPDATE on Duncan 4/10/14:

We were able to check out some of Duncans' vet records last night, it appears Duncan may have a ball obstruction in his stomach found on x-rays on 10/1, and his previous owner wanted to wait two months (despite the vet telling him that they advised against it).

We also found he is on pain meds and joint supplements for his elbow dysplasia which we are unsure of the origin, but we are going to be looking into both medical issues further. We are working on getting additional x-rays to determine if the ball is still lodged, if it's in the same place, or further down his digestive tract and whats going on with his elbow and a potential limp on his hind leg.

This ball being lodged is potentially a life-threatening issue for him at this point. The good news is that with famotadine before breakfast, he IS holding his meals down; and he is acting normal.

Here is a good picture of his elbow showing his dysplasia.
