Hi welcome to HCM!
yes it sounds like viral gastroenteritis.

Give him plenty of fluids ,pedialyte and see that he passes good amount of urine.
Avoiding dehydration is important.If he stall continues to vomit,then you have to take him to the doctor-he may need IV fluids.
The loose stools will stop in 3-4 days time.
No need for antibiotics.
Good luck
God bless
