Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

This can be very toxic to your sweet Wiibur so if he has ingested this within 2 hrs, you need to induce vomiting by giving Wilbur 5 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide or concentrated salt water. If he has not vomited within 15 minutes, do it again. You can safely do this 3 times. This wil remove all of the toxin from Wilbur's system and he will be fine. If it has been longer than 2 hrs, then take him immediately to the nearest vet clinic for treatment.

Does that make sense to you?
