I remember someone recommending pet specific ones but the UK is rubbish for pet stuff so I don't know if I'll find them. Another thing about the UK being rubbish is that we don't have canned pumpkin either...is there anything I can use instead? Heartagram said Waitrose sell it but we don't have one here

Thanks again for the advice. And thanks to both of you for the well wishes. I shall try and get some sleep before Mylo needs to get up again and look for those things tomorrow.
FYI: Here the children's electrolyte drinks are found in pharmacies. They're meant for children that have diarrhea, and should be found in the child/infant section.

Diorolyte or pedialyte, there are supermarket own brands too. TBH I would only use them if I suspected dehydration, they don't tend to like the taste.
I did work out the dose for Tree Bark powder and it was tiny, so I just put a pinch on his food. It smells nice, a bit like walnuts, they don't seem to mind it.
I do flavour warm water (with a tiny piece of tripe or minced chicken usually) and add it to that too if I want them to drink.

I think cooked chicken and rice is only gentle on the tummy if the dog is used to cooked meat and grains. (Such as kibble)
Mylo is only used to raw meat, no grains, so the sudden change might well make him worse.

Thanks so much everyone. I really appreciate the help. He slept for a couple of hours this morning without having to get up. It's mostly mucus now. He still seems normal though, I don't think his behaviour seems any different. How often do you give the bark stuff? Thanks

I've barely slept all night. I slept a bit this morning and when I did I had bad dreams about Mylo dying and it being my fault

I don't have anything new to add because you have been given great advice but I wanted to send good thoughts and healing thoughts to Mylo.
I hope he feels better soon!
