Hello, my name is***** and I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian. I am sorry to hear about Martini's stomach upset.
At home to try and settle his stomach in case this is related to nausea you can give either:
1)Pepcid ac (famotidine) at a dose of 1/4 of a 10mg tablet per 5 to 10 pounds of body weight every 12 hours
OR
2)Prilosec (omeprazole) at dose of 1/4 of a 10mg tablet per 5 to 10 pounds of body weight every 24 hours
These are acid reducers and should help him feel less nauseous,
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
