Are you still here?

Do not feed for next 12 hours.

Tomorrow when time to feed give one part slinless chucjeb breast boiled to 3 parts white rice. Feed in amll amoints. This should give his stomach a rest and allow him to feel better. geed this bland diet for a week and then wan back onto the normal dier slowly. If you post weight I will get you mount of pepcid to give to srtop vomiting.

He’s about 17-18kg

he Pepcid AC is given every 12-24 hours as needed and you can give 1/2 of a tablet in that time frame. The bland diet will allow the stomach to rest. If it does not clear or gets worse a hands on exam woukd ne needed.

He wont stop panting or shaking now

Those are signs of pain. His stomach may be painful.

Did he eat any people food or a non food item? The Pepcid should help if his stomach is painful.

He had roast dinner on sunday what is pepcid? Its 1:30 in the morning here no where open

T.he Pepcid AC is also known as Ganadodine and is for stomach issues and helps with nausea, You can het it from the chemist, but it will have to wait till morning. Toast would not bother his stomach, but fatty foods or spicy foods can do that.. Rawhide can also bother the stomach.

If we give something for pain it canmask the problem and make him worse. Try some plain broth for him if you have it or Pepto Bismol may help.
