Hello. Thanks for the question. If he is vomiting after drinking, then I would really worry about an obstruction. Plastic toys are commonly found at surgery causing obstructions in the gut. I would start with x-rays. If there is an obstructive pattern, then it's off to surgery to remove it. If there is not an obstruction, then we can typically do some fluids and give anti-nausea meds to treat. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
