Thanks for using, I'm Dr. Dan and I'll try to help you.

At this point you don't need to do anything. These packets are just irritating to the stomach and not overly toxic. You may see an episode or two of vomiting and or diarrhea at most, then he should feel better. Most dogs don't react at all to the gel and are just fine.

I hope this helps, best wishes.
