Did you mean that Jet Vomited, but is now eating and drinking?

With this type of ingestion, we may just see self-limiting gastrointestinal symptoms. ie. vomiting 1-2 times and maybe some diarrhea in a few hours.

The only serious side effects we need to watch for are those indicating the pancreas has become inflamed. Intractable vomiting and diarrhea, lethargy and abdominal pain, but this is only the worse case and the chances of it occurring are low.

If he is eating and drinking we can give him a dose of Pepsid 0.5 mg/pound ( every 12 hours) or Prilosec at 0.5mg/pound (every 24 hours) just pick one antacid to use.

I would also recommend no treats and to feed a bland diet for the next 24 hours ( boiled chicken and rice, canned chicken etc)

Good luck with Jet.

If this was helpful I would be most appreciative if you could take the time to rate my assistance so the site will credit me with helping you

Without a rating (the stars at the top) the site will not compensate me for helping you.

I am also here for additional questions you may have, just reach out to me here and I will be more than happy to assist you.

Kind regards,

Dr. Meghan Denney
