Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

This is not a medication that we typically use in dogs, but fortunately just having it in his mouth should not be toxic to Bear. Keep an eye out for lethargy, being overly sleepy/non responsive, excitability, vomiting, diarrhea, etc. If you notice any symptoms that concern you, take him promptly to your vet for treatment. I imagine that you won't, but its worth keeping a close eye on him for the next 12-24 hours.

I’ll be standing by if you have other questions. Let me know if I can help further.

How long before it would be out of system

As this medication is not used in dogs, the information available is limited. However, the effects of similar medications are usually witnessed the greatest in the first 6 hours. I would expect that if you have not witnessed any adverse effects by morning that you likely won't.
