Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

With regards ***** ***** question, if Demarco weighs 17lbs, he can have half a 4mg tablet to soothe his stomach. Of course, if that doesn't settle the vomiting then we'd want to consider having his vet just make sure he hasn't a gut blockage or infection. But otherwise we'd hope to get him feeling less nauseous.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
