My dog may have ate glass :-/

My 7 mo old lab was alone in my room for about an hour. When i came back i found one of my picture frames on the floor chewed to hell. About half of the frame is missing. The frame in itself is small, about 3"x5". Its like particle board. But theres a little chip of the glass missing, about twice the size of a pencil eraser but half the width. I checked her mouth and theres no blood, but i checked the floor and cant find it. Shes been left alone for alot longer before and has never done anything. Today was different. What do i do? Just monitor for blood in stool? I haven't given her, her night time yet, do i hold off or give it to her?

i would actually feed her, because im thinking, if she did eat the glass, it travelling through her system on an empty stomach could do allot more damage. also if she is a dog that likes to eat grass, take her out, and let her eat as much as possible.
id check her poop for the next 2-3 days, for blood, and to see if she has passed it.
i would also say contact a vet, they could maybe induce vomiting, i dont know if a small piece of glass like that would show up on x-rays.... i hope everything will turn out ok.

so on a side note, she wants more of the frame. When i had it sitting to get the picture taken she came up and took it.

On the serious end. Im feeding her now, i put water with the food, im hoping itll help soften up the frame making it easier to pass. Shes due to number 2, anytime between now and the next 4 hours.

Feed her bread, the idea being that it'll help catch and pad the glass if she ate any, and keep trying to contact your vet. Call around to different vets and try their after hours number. Leave messages they should call you back fairly quickly. I've done that in the past for a DF member who's dog ate a pen, they were in the middle of Sandy and didn't have a way to contact the vet. So I called around to the ones here and got a call back from one.

Here's a link recommending feeding the dog bread
What Are Some Symptoms Of Dog Eating Glass? What To Do Now?

If you google it you'll find a bunch of forums where owners were recommended to feed the dog bread when it might have, or had, eaten glass.

It wouldn't hurt, but I"m not sure if it'd help if the glass has passed out of the stomach.

IMO there is no escaping a trip to the Vets. You need X-Rays to determine how much glass, and how big the pieces are. Too much risk IMO to just wait it out.
