Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

Yes you can give pepcid at 0.25 mg/ pound every 12 hours for a few days to settle his stomach. For his size this is 10 mg 1 & 1/2 tablets orally

I would also advise small more bland meals such as white rice and lean boiled meat such as chicken and several leash walks daily to help reduce abdominal cramping, nausea, and helping the table scraps through more readily

Please let me know any additional questions I can assist with this evening! I hope he is feeling better soon!
