Vet
by: HannahRae

Don't wait. Get to the vet. Most dogs have a high pain threshold and you often don't know something is wrong until it's really bad.

Not Eating
by: Michele

Is he drinking water? You don't want him to become dehydrated. You say he's going potty...do you notices any changes in that...such as, does he seem to have a hard time urinating or is his stool loose or bloody? That can be an indication of a couple of things like eating something he shouldn't have. Do you give rawhide bones? Five days without food is getting to be a problem. I'd definitely have the Vet take a look at him.

I'd be taking your dog to the vet asap, springer's are famous for eating things they shouldnt. could be something that's internal so not obvious.
i've never known a springer to refuse food, if one of mine didnt react to the sound of a crisp packet i'd be worried lol
