Kids dehydrate very quickly - so he needs to either start drinking ASAP or you must take him to the ED.
Offer him ice-cubes in a face washer to suck, an icy pole or hydralite.
If he's sleepy, wont drink, irritable, hasn't weed in the past few hours I wouldn't wait.

Thank you all, we ended up going to the ED as he began getting severe abdo pain and I was concerned about appendicitis.
They checked him over, felt his tummy and he managed to keep down some apple juice so we're home again now.
Hopefully he feels better soon gastro sucks

Gastro is horrid and keeping them hydrated is hard when they dont feel like it. Get sone gastrolyte or hydralyte and like a previous poster said tiny 5ml syringes grab a half dozen fill them up and give one to him every 5-10mins.
Offer water, cordial, iceblocks, chipped ice.

I would assess for dehydration first and not take him unless he's dehydrated and not tolerating any fluids at home. Try ice cubes, teaspoons of liquid, and hydralite icy poles.
At the hospital, they will likely insert a cannula straight away to administer fluids, is generally the first thing they do in this situation. I would avoid that if he's still tolerating fluids at home, and maybe take him to the GP tomorrow to assess.
