How large was the piece of ceramic?

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Less than an inch. I think it was thin but I’m not sure. It was part of a ceramic mug that fell
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
I gave her a piece and a half of bread

That will not pass through the gastrointestinal system without causing major damage......You will have to go to the ER and have them remove this endoscopically.....

Trying to allow this to pass can kill your puppy....
