Keep an eye on him. Keep offering him fluids. Sounds like the tummy bug and should move to the runs quickly. Do NOT give him any juice or sugary drinks these will dehydrate more then hydrate especially when it turns into the runs. Remember usually as one person gets over it the next person starts. So plenty of hand washing and all that stuff. It shouldn't last longer then 24 hours. Keep a close eye on signs of dehydration.

Call the doc. Or at least Ask A Nurse. Even if there's no fever, there could be a risk of dehydration. How are you taking the temp anyway? How often is he puking? What did he have to eat last (before the puking started)?

I would definitely take him to urgent care!!!! He could dehydrate in minutes. That is really serious.
