What you musn't do is induce emesis. Please see here: http://thebark.com/content/dangers-gorilla-glue

If you believe that Chewy ingested enough to form a firm concretion of the glue, please have an on-call vet radiograph (X-ray) Chewy's upper GI tract to better understand if treatment is indicated; in most cases, that treatment would be surgical removal of the glue. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
