Hi, I'm a licensed veterinarian, and I'll be happy to help.I usually suggest a dose of Pepto-bismol liquid, 1mL per 10 pounds of body weight, in cases like this.Other options, though somewhat less effective, include:Pepcid-AC, 10mg tablet, OR Bonine (meclizine), 25mg tablet. Any of these are sold without a prescription in any pharmacy.

No, baking soda is not appropriate and not recommended.
