Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

Just to confirm, he didn't ingest any of the vial itself just the contents? If he didn't ingest the vial (which is a foreign body concern) and only the contents then likely he will be at risk of an upset stomach but he should be just fine

As a precaution I would give him a meal of white rice and lean boiled meat with water mixed in to dilute the contents and monitor for vomiting, diarrhea, reduced appetite for 12-24 hours but if you pass this point there should be no issues

Please let me know any additional questions I can assist with today
