I'm Dr. Burke and I will try and help.

Please give me a few minutes to read over your responses and to formulate a reply.

Thank you.

Thank you for your patience

I'm sorry to hear that Hershey isn't feeling well.

You can give tums but generally doesn't work great in dogs... You can use Pepcid 10mg: 1/2 tablet twice daily.

If this vomiting doesn't stop then he should be seen right away for some testing and some additional treatment.

I hope this helps. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any additional questions.

OK I will try that thank you very much much if hes not better tomorrow I'll take him to to the vet thank you so helpful appreciate it

Your very welcome. Hope he feels better!
