My little 7-8lb dog is vomiting. I have some medication

Customer Question

Hi My little 7-8lb dog is vomiting. I have some medication that was recently given to my other dog for vomiting. It is Metoclopramide 10mg/#5 tablets. My other dog is heavier but he was to take a 1/4 tablet every 12 hrs as needed for nausea. My vet is closed and I am at a loss. Can I give a dose of this medication to my Gizmo who is smaller at 7-8lbs and would the dose be the same of 1/4 tablet?
