It seems like Gastroenteritis. Most common cause of gastroenteritis is viral.

My advise would be:
1. Give ORS - Oral rehydration solution along with lots of other liquids
2. Continue feeding his normal fluids/feed. Is he still breast feed?
3. Give Andestron drops (assuming that it contains antivomiting medicine - Ondansetron)
4. Monitor number of wet nappies with wee/day

There is no need to use Zenflox at the moment.

Recovery is usually associated with control of vomiting first and later diarrhoea settles (may be 3-7 days time for diarrhoea)
