Hello. I'm sorry for the long wait. I just logged on and saw this. I think it's unlikely that the dog ingested that much. Chances are, he was chewing up the bottle and emptied most of it on the lawn. If some was ingested, we usually see GI side effects- vomiting, diarrhea. If a significant amount was ingested, we could see neurologic signs- tremors, seizures. If you notice mild vomiting/ diarrhea, it should resolve on it's own. If it's severe and he's not eating/ drinking, then I would go to a vet for some fluids and anti-nausea meds. If you notice any neurologic signs, then get to a vet asap for more aggressive care. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
