obviously try to think of anything unusual that he could have ingested. If you are sure that he did not get into anything then I would recommend resting his stomach and giving some Pepcid AC. This is an acid reducer that can help with stomach upset and vomiting. Is a human product but you can pick it up at any pharmacy or grocery store.If you provide me with his weight I can get you the dose of Pepcid AC that you can give.

In the meantime I would just rest his stomach. Give him the Pepcid AC and then wait maybe a half an hour before providing a small meal. If he is unwilling to eat you can always try to a very small amount of low sodium chicken broth.

I would certainly make sure that he is still willing to drink water so that he can stay hydrated.
