Default Chinchilla on cc, metacam, metronidazole, now not pooping

Recently took Chinchilla into the vet as he had stopped eating. They suspected his teeth, and did a CT scan to confirm. They got him eating & pooping in hospital for a couple days then sent him home with critical care, metacam (anti-inflam. & pain, and metronidazole (antibiotic). He's supposed to get 10 syringes of critical care a day.

It was fine for 2 days, although yesterday he wasn't force fed as much, as he seemed to be voluntarily eating.

The problem is he hasn't pooped for the last 10 hours as far as I can tell. Should I still be force feeding him? Should he receive his next medicine dose?

It doesn't look like i'll be able to get ahold of a vet until tomorrow
