Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I'm sorry to hear that Nicco is vomiting after having eaten the raw salmon. I'm worried that he is a bacterial infection in his intestines from eating it (food poisoning, basically). I recommend getting him to the vet for some antibiotics and anti-nausea medication. They may treat with some fluids as well, if there has been a lot of vomiting and he is dehydrated.
