Hello, No, that is too much.Yes, we do use Pepcid, a lot, in cats, but that would really be a lot for a kitten. The typical size cat, we give a 1/4 tablet of a 10mg tablet. So, a average size cat gets about 2.5mgSo, for a kitten, you would have to go with essentially a flake (less than 1/8). Of course, if there is ongoing stomach distress, at this age, make sure to get to a vet as soon as possible.Good Luck!Dr. Andy
