I have really good news for you. As long as the overdose is only one time even high milligram overdoses like this usually have no damaging issues. Usually, it will cause vomiting or diarrhea for a short period of time if there are any side effects at all. If it is given IV then it is often fatal, but ingestion is ok. If he starts vomiting more than 3 times then see the vet to get the vomiting stopped, but even if the hydrogen peroxide doesn't work in most cases you have nothing to worry about. I hope this helps, if not please feel free to ask more questions, if it did help, please leave a rating. Dr. Dan
