Petroleum products like transmission fluid are toxic to dogs and can cause death if the pet is not treated promptly after exposure.

I would recommend having him seen just as quickly as you can for an evaluation. If this is not something that can be done tonight, please take this opportunity to use dawn dish soap or a similar product and clean the sticky residue out of his coat so he cannot ingest any more of it. If he feels like eating tonight, give him a bland diet of boiled chicken and rice instead of his regular diet to entice him to eat and also keep the risk of an upset stomach to a minimum.
