Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid ou sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

Do you know what chemical was used?

If you check the normally pink areas of his gums or eye lids, are they pink or pale/white?

Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count his breaths for 10 seconds + multiply by 6)?

Any appetite loss, changes in thirst or tremors/twitching?
