My name is***** and I can try and help you today. It sounds like Moose is having some vomiting. How often is he doing this, and is he eating ok?

Expert:  Sarah Snow replied 11 months ago.

Sometimes being congested prior to vomiting, and the yellow color to the vomit can indicate acid reflux.

I would recommend trying Pepcid AC. How much does Moose weigh?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
25 lbs. He does this maybe at least twice a month. I do have to watch him , he likes to eat his sister's food .
Expert:  Sarah Snow replied 11 months ago.

The vomiting may be due to getting into food hes not used to for sure. Sometimes too they can just get an acid stomach from not eating overnight. Try some Pepcid before bedtime. His dose is

5mg. So you can get the 10mg tablets over the counter and give him a 1/2 of a tablet every 12-24 hours.
