My dog may have ate too much because his stomach is large

Customer Question

Hello my dog may have ate too much because his stomach is large and he's only 4 months old. However I also got him a flea collar which I took off because it worried me that he licked it earlier as I was fitting it on for him. He had it on for over 8 hours while I was at work and when I came back my roommates said they fed him around 6 or 7 when he just ate at 1:30 for the first time. And I feel like he ate too much. He ended up vomiting a lot of food awhile ago and had diarrhea. His breathing was really shallow at first, very rapid and as of right now as I'm monitoring him he seems to be a lot better after vomitting. I'm still worried because I wonder if this is a poisoning from the collar or bloating. Either one isn't good. His stomach does look smaller now but do you think i should wait until the morning to take him to the vet or just go right now instead?
JA: It's hard to know for sure. The Veterinarian will figure it out. I'll do all I can to help. Did you see what May ate?
Customer: I apologize I wrote so much by the way.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about May?
Customer: He has these new snacks that I guess are sausage and cheese for dogs. He wouldn't touch it earlier when I tried giving him one but it may be because I he was already so full and bloated. He eats Blue, I forget the entire name but its for puppies and apparently contains red meat.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

That would be great I just had to pay over 200 for a parvo test so I could use that to be honest.
