Hello. My name is***** am happy to help you with your question. Give me just a moment to respond and type.

As long as he is not vomiting, because he would just vomit the medication back up, you could give Pepto bismol and Pepcid AC. It is fine to give both together.

Pepto- one teaspoon every 8 hours

Pepcid 10mg tablets- 1/4 of a tablet every 12 hours

Do not feed him any food until his stomach settles down.

Water is fine as long as he is not vomiting.

Try not to let him eat flowers or ground cover outside as that will further upset his stomach and some plants are toxic.

He is just trying to eat them to cool his stomach down or induce vomiting.

Does that help? Do you have any other questions for me?
