3- How many milligrams were the pills?

4- Any pre existing medical conditions?

Friend, the most common side effect of Klonopin ingestion is sedation. I don't believe the vomiting is related to the Klonopin as it been 24 hours since he took it. Other possible causes are ingestion of a foreign body, gastritis, pancreatitis, or even part of a systemic disease, etc. to name a few causes. To determine the exact underlying cause he will need a hands-on examination with your vet, x-rays and blood work as an initial screening test. In the meantime, this is what you can do:

1- Do not give things like Pepto Bismol or Imodium. Start him on Pepcid AC (famotidine) 10mg 1/4 tablet every 12 hours for the next 2-3 days. You can buy Pepcid AC over the counter in any pharmacy.

2- No food or water for 6-8 hours. Need to give his gastrointestinal tract time to rest.

3- After 6-8 hours offer a small amount of water. Wait half hour, if no vomiting, offer a small amount of rice (50%) and boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (50%) 4-6 times a day. Keep on this diet for several days then wean into regular diet.

4- Follow up with your family veterinarian for a hands on examination. If cost is a concerned I would look into your local ASPCA or Shelter where they often offer veterinary services at a lower cost.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service. See you again soon!
