Hi there. Thanks for the question. You could try give him some human Pepcid AC. He would get one 10 mg tablet if he around 50 lbs. or one and half tablets if he is closer to 75 lbs. feed only small meals, wetted down with water to get him some extra fluids. no treats today. If vomiting continues, then get him to a vet. I hope this helps. Best of luck.
