Yes there is something you can give him until your vet can see you on Monday. There are many products containing Dextromethorphan Hbr 15mg. Brand names are ***** ***** gels or wal-tussin from walgreens:

There are many generic products that you can choose from all with different names. These can be purchased at local human pharmacies or large retail stores without a prescription. Many products contain other ingredients besides dextromethorphan so look carefully at the box. He can have 1 of these 3 times a day until then. I hope this helps if not please feel free to ask more questions, if it did help, please leave a rating.
