How often do you feed Sidney?
Is he throwing up before or after he eats?
We feed him 3 times per day. 8am, 1pm, and 7pm and no, no throwing up after meals. Only as soon as he gets up in the am
this morning it was a brown liquid
I wonder if he is just going too long between feedings. The daytime is good, but he is going over 12 hours without food after his 7p feeding.
If he is otherwise acting normally and the vomiting is only in the morning, then I would try a couple things at home to see if they help.
1. feed him another meal right before bedtime or just leave food out overnight for him to nibble on. Or if someone gets up earlier than 8am, maybe feed him right away.
2. Give him some Pepcid at night to decrease his stomach acids. How much does Sidney weigh?
I'd start with 10 mg Pepcid each evening.
okay that sounds good. We'll try that. Thank you very much!
You're welcome! Let me know how it goes!
okay, how can I do that? This is my first time using this.
