Friend, as you may already know the concern is that the glass can puncture her gastrointestinal tract or become obstructed. Inducing vomiting is not indicated as the glass can damage the esophagus on the way out. However, she is a big dog so it is likely she will be able to pass it in the stool. This is what you can do:

1- Do not give things like Pepto Bismol.

2- Do not induce vomiting.

3- Feed her immediately some bread. Then, change the diet for the next 2-3 days to rice (75%) and boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (25%). The idea is for the bread and rice bind the glass to help move in the feces while protecting the intestinal tract. Make sure you check her feces; if you do not find the glass within 48 hours I would have her checked by your veterinarian.

4- If during the next few days you see the following symptoms: lethargy, anorexia, vomiting, constipated or diarrhea, etc. follow up immediately with a veterinarian. These are all signs of a possible obstruction or perforation of the intestinal tract. In the meantime, observe her and change her diet as above then wean her back into her regular diet.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service it is how I get compensated. See you again soon!
