Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!First and foremost we need to get Bruiser some benadryl, a dose of 1 mg/ pound and this should provide relief within 30-60 minutes of administration. So if he is 14 pounds he would get 1/2 adult 25 mg or a children's 12.5 mg tabletSecond famotidine (pepcid) 0.25 mg/ pound every 12 hours to help settle his stomach along with some bland food of white rice and boiled chicken. But the benadryl is what is going to make him feel better asapIf you can get him up and walking after the benadryl then it will absorb more rapidly...I hope this information makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both today. Other antihistamines can work but benadryl is the most effective and may cause mild sedation initially. Repeat in four hours then again 6-8 hours for 24 hours
