Hello, thanks for your question today! I am Dr. Drew, and I am a licensed veterinarian. I'll be happy to help you in any way I can.
Fortunately, neither of these is likely to create any life threatening consequences. I would expect there might be some sluggishness or lethargy, due to a drop in blood pressure, but I do not think that there's an imminent need for veterinary attention. I expect that these effects will be mild and should resolve within 24 hours.

Thank you, ***** ***** keep an eye on him. Since he is very active a little sluggishness may be a blessing.
