Do you mean he hasn't peed for 3 days? Get him to the ER, he is severely dehydrated and this could be dangerous.

If he hasn't pooped (but is still peeing regularly), then it sounds like he is constipated, and is a little dehydrated. Try to get some fluids into him, and maybe even some fruit juice to help with the process.

is it pee or poop?
If it's pee then start getting some fluids into him and see if you can make him pee by the afternoon.
If it's poop he might be a bit backed up but it's not as worrying as lack of pee.
If he doesn't pee by the afternoon maybe take him to the er.
You can also call and see if you should bring him in if you are worried.
