Hi there.

If this has been getting worse, there is a good chance that he may have a form of Laryngeal Paralysis. This occurs due to part of his larynx is not functioning and this sometimes allows water or food to go into the windpipe and this causes gagging and sometimes vomiting.

Have your vet examine your dig, A surgical procedure will solve his problem.
