7&1/2 month old isn't interested in his bottle or solids

My son is almost 8 months old and two days ago he stopped taking his bottle and this morning he wasn't interested in his baby food either. When offered his bottle he waves it away, if we try to get the nipple in his mouth he begins to cough, almost as if it's triggering a gag reflex. (Needless to say, we've stopped trying to get the nipple in his mouth.) However, he won't drink from his sippy cup either. So far he's shown no other symptoms and shows no signs of dehydration, although I'm sure that's right around the corner. Has anyone dealt with something like this before?

I would take him to a doctor immediately. Lack of appetite might be a symptom of a small virus, or stomach bug.
