there's a good chance he got out what he needed to get out and is just resting now. if he's settled, all you'll do is incur hundreds of dollars in vet charges.
if he continues to puke, won't eat or drink and can't shit, by all means go to the vet.
vets are very costly.... and time consuming.
would you go to the hospital if you barfed or had an upset stomach?
probably not... you'd only go if it lasted more than a day. do the same thing with your dog. he's probably just got an upset tummy.
