I am sorry to hear this happened.

How long ago did this happen?

About 15 minutes.

I see. That is actually a drug used in dogs and the dosing that was eaten is less than the normal dose when using it to treat heart disease. This means the amount of drug eaten should not cause any major problems. He may have a little upset stomach (which can happen from eating anything), but I would not expect any issue from eating that amount of medication.
