I am sorry to hear this. This is unfortunately very common.

The dryer sheets can cause irritation of the stomach and intestines, leading to vomiting and sometimes diarrhea.

It would be best to avoid feeding him tonight to prevent any unnecessary vomiting.

If your dog vomits over and over tonight, a trip to the vet is recommended to help stop the vomiting and look for a potential blockage or obstruction of the GI tract.

Most of the time they will do just fine after vomiting them up, but expect some diarrhea down the road that should resolve within a few days. Please let me know if I can help you any further. I will await your response.
