That is really strange. Are the neurologic signs improving since we started talking?
Okay. Do you have an animal ER near you? It is very concerning that he is having neurologic signs tonight.
Are his eyeballs bobbing side to side?
Okay. Take away the water. Vomiting dogs will often drink excessively and this will make their nausea worse.

Okay. This is really helpful.
Based on your description, I would wonder about vestibular disease. This is very common in old dogs and is caused by inflammation in the middle ear. It is like vertigo. It can cause nausea and the dogs will have one side more affected than the other. The left eye bobbing more, turning the head to the left, etc.
It is often treated with anti-nausea medication and medications for vertigo that your local veterinarian can prescribe.
