He did not eat most of packaging or tube

Thankfully, ingestion of triamcinolone by dogs is just as safe as by you.  Transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea is possible if any adverse effect at all.  There's no need to induce emesis nor treat in any manner.  You can feed and water as usual.

Please respond with additional questions and concerns if you wish.

Customer
Should I monitor for anything specific?

...Only the transient signs I posted above.  Please continue in this conversation if you wish.

Customer
even the quantity he Ingested is safe?

Absolutely.  We dose dogs with oral triamcinolone at doses at up to 0.1 mg per pound of bodyweight.

Customer
Ok great thanks very much

You're quite welcome.  I can't set a follow up in this venue and so please return to our conversation with an update at your convenience.
