Hello there. I am sorry to hear about your little guy. I am happy to help you this evening. These little dogs do not have a lot of reserves so to much vomiting will cause dehydration and even low blood sugar. So if he is still lethargic and not feeling well you should consider having him seen by your vet tonight or tomorrow morning at the latest. You can give him water by dropper or syringe to try to help his hydration if he will keep it down. I would hold off on food for 24 hours so his tummy settles down. Since you already gave him the vomiting medications that is good and hopefully will slow down his vomiting. The concern is what caused this and if he has become dehydrated. That is why having him seen by your vet is important. If you cant get him in tonight then try to get him water and keep him calm and quiet until he can been tomorrow.

I hope this helps and I hope this makes sense. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions or concerns. I would be happy to help. Please do not forget to rate my response so I receive credit for my time. Thank you!
