The good news here is that greenies are digestible and vitamins are well tolerated in dogs- even in large numbers.

You're likely to see some GI upset (vomiting, nausea, cramping, diarrhea) over the next 24-48 hours. Other than that, you're not likely to have any other issues.

I would just make sure he is drinking plenty of water. He'll lose a good amount of fluid into the gut to digest that, so he'll be more thirsty than normal. I would also feed smaller meals over the next 2-3 days. Small meals every 6 hours is ideal vs larger meals every 12 hours.

After 2-3 days, you can resume normal feeding.

If you notice continued vomiting and dehydration, then I would get him seen by a vet for more aggressive symptomatic care.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
