Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

What was the weed killer's active ingredient?

How many hours ago did this happen?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?

Any breathing changes or tremors?

Are his gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?
