If you have not already done so you should call your usual vet.

If your dog was my patient I would have him come in for observation.  If necessary, I would induce vomiting and give supportive therapy: IV fluids, injectable gastro  protectants, charcoal, etc.

Don't waste time!  Take him to the vet.

So, I guess your plan is to wait until the vet answers, which could be about 20 hrs from now.  Then, it might be too late.

DUHHHHH!!!!
