At 10kg, the low end of the toxicity dose for GI concerns is 25mg/kg. He's only had 20mg/kg. It would be wise to go ahead and induce vomiting but it does not sound like he's consumed enough to cause major issues. Erring on the side of caution is going to be your best prevention, however. For this, use a fresh bottle of hydrogen peroxide and follow these instructions: http://www.sunrisepetclinicaz.com/vomiting.html
It's also wise to have the Henry vet checked. If you do see any GI concerns in the days to come, most certainly have an exam performed.

You have around 2 hours to make this happen after an ingestion. You can elect salt if you want, but I do not advise it because it can alter the electrolyte balance and some dogs may wind up in the hospital needing more therapy than before. If the option exists, I would recommend the purchase of a fresh bottle of peroxide. There's less risk with this route.
