Thanks for the information! With this glue the biggest problem is obstruction/blockage of the intestines from either big chunks of glue or pieces of the plastic container it comes in. Since it sounds like he didn't ingest that much of either of these substances the most that could happen is minor intestinal irritation (vomiting and diarrhea) that should only last a few hours. Most likely your pooch will be just fine with no effects.

I hope this helps, best wishes.
