Welcome! My name isXXXXX am a 2003 graduate from UC Davis, and currently a Medical Director of a veterinary hospital.

I am sorry to hear about this concern.
Well, I am not concerned about any toxicity to the body.

But, could it still result in some gastrointestinal distress like diarrhea, vomiting, or loss of appetite? Yes, its possible

So, at this time, I would not take any action or induce vomiting, but you'll have to closely watch for any stomach upset.

It wouldn't hurt to feed some extra food. Nothing fancy. Just his typical food.
Diarrhea could take up to about 2 days before being observed, so just keep an eye out.

I hope that information has been helpful.
