Hi there. Thanks for the question. This is very serious and you need to get ruger to an emergency vet right away. The baking soda is sodium bicarbonate and can cause significant electrolyte abnormalities and heart arrhythmias. This could be life threatening. It's not something you an fix at home. Best wishes. Please get him to a vet ASAP.
