Hello!

Thank you for your question, I'm Dr. Dan and I'll try to help you.

This product is not all that dangerous fortunately. What you can expect from a little mouth exposure is possibly a little mouth irritation resulting in drooling a little. If he did swallow any it usually causes significant vomiting and/or diarrhea whithin miutes to hours after ingestion. If he vomits more than three times then he needs to see the vet to stop the vomiting with an injection but this is unlikely to happen. If he stops eating for 24 hours then have the vet check him for a mouth chemical burn. However based on what you are telling me none of that is likely to happen and he'll be just fine. I hope this helps, if not please feel free to ask more questions. Dr. Dan
