Welcome to Justanswer! I apologize for the delay in my response.
If you are able to get to the store then that would be best to find some peroxide, either a grocery or pharmacy because we do have an hour after ingestion
Because we are at the marginal or low end dose of possible signs but often signs are not seen until a higher dose you may elect to monitor for the signs I had listed or take Murphy into a veterinary er to give stronger medication to induce vomiting such as apomorphine.
This would be a precaution to minimize the possible side effects. If you elect to monitor then it would be best to have him seen if he does develop those signs to minimize further progression
