He is sick and needs a vet. Here's what you can do:
Take him to the vet, have him diagnosed, and have it treated.
Not taking him to the vet on the other hand could bring about his death. Plus taking him to the vet when the problem has gotten worse will cost more than taking him to the vet now.

Withholding medical *is* against the law.
Godspeed.

Please go to the vet. There is a point where dogs cannot take enough water in to rehydrate and need IV fluids.

I agree with the others. Please take your dog to the vet. CoCo is there right now dehydrated with IV's until tomorrow. I would rather be safe than sorry.

The problem is, it sounds like no matter what you do, he is going to throw it up. So things such as pedialyte aren't going to do anything. The only way for him to KEEP fluids in is for a vet to give him IV fluids. The bigger issue is, what is causing this? and the only one that can determine that is a vet. The symptoms you are describing can be very serious and your dog's health will quickly decline. He needs to be seen ASAP
