I wouldn't worry yet. An obstruction is not hard to diagnose - usually there are obvious signs: fever, lethargy, inability to poop, lack of appetite, vomiting.
I'm pretty sure hyper and distracted aren't symptoms.
I'm not a vet, but I've worked in rescue for years. Maybe because we evaluate the dogs so thoroughly, an obstruction has always been easy to find in them. I don't think we've ever missed one. We've had some really weird cases of obstructions, but never due to any raw food. Mainly it's been strange household objects that make you wonder how the heck the dog even swallowed it.
I'm replying based on that experience. Obviously this is the internet, so I assume everyone takes advice with that in mind.
