Hello there. I am sorry to hear that your dog got into gorilla glue. I am happy to help you this evening. This is actually quite a serious situation and he must be taken to an emergency hospital to be addressed immediately. Gorilla glue when swallowed mixes with stomach acid and blows up and makes a hard ball actually. Its a chemical reaction and creates a large hard foreign body that must be removed with surgery. I would absolutely not induce vomiting. He needs to be examined and have x rays done to see if he swallowed enough to cause any problems and then proceed from there. So I would strongly recommend having him seen immediately.

I hope this helps and I hope this makes sense. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions or concerns. I would be happy to help. Please do not forget to rate my response so I receive credit for my time. Thank you!
