HI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you with this......The glitter will likely pass.....and the glue is not toxic.....but what you need to be concerned about is the fact that the glue can harden in the stomach and cause an intestinal obstruction and that is potentially every serious. I would strongly recommend that you take your dog to the ER tonight especially since he did not vomit up anything to speak of. That is enough glue to cause a problem. There is noway you can treat this at home. I hope this helps you. Sincerely, DRB
