I am sorry to hear this happened.

How long ago did your dog do this and how much of the tube was eaten (liquid vs the tube itself)?

15 minutes ago. Less than 1/4 teaspoon in tube

I see. That amount should not cause any major problem in a dog. The bigger issue would be if the tube itself was eaten. Aquaphor is very commonly eaten by dogs and typically does not cause any problem. Some dogs can get a little bit of upset stomach, like a vomiting episode or two, however it is likely a dog that size will not have any issues at all. He should be just fine!
