Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. In all likelihood, he will be fine. According to the material safety data sheet for the product, swallowing less than an ounce shouldn't cause significant harm. At most, I would just try to rinse his mouth out with water and get him to drink. If they do ingest more than an ounce, it is not recommended to induce vomiting with any of these type of substances because they can be damaging to the lining of the GI tract and cause more damage coming back up. Damage to the esophagus is usually permanent and not something you want. It doesn't sound like he ingested anywhere near that, though. If you do notice him vomiting multiple times, having bloody stool or has a painful abdomen, I would have your vet tend to him. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
