If he isn't able to keep it down there isn't anything you can give him to "fatten" him up. Most digestion and absorption happens farther down in the digestive track not the stomach. So if he keeps it down for 20 minutes then throws it up he really isn't getting any calories or nutrition.

Your best bet before force feeding him is contact his dr and tell them what is going on. If they don't care or have suggestions I would find another dr.
