I think Phoebe ate a tampon...gross I know

Post  PhoebesMommy on 8/8/2011, 11:01 pm

Ok since were mostly women here, I figured I could share and get some advice. I normally am pretty good about putting the trash can up during my "lady days" but today I didnt. Well of course I wasnt paying attention to her for a few minutes and when I went to check on her she was laying on my bed chewing on toiletpaper. I got the toilet paper from her but the used tampon that was in the toilet paper was no where to be found. What do I do? Will she throw it up, will she pass it through the other end? Do I call her vet in the morning? Im worried about her. Any advice would be greatly appreiated.

Did she poop or throw up this morning? if not I would call the vet, I would hate to see it get obstructed in her stomach.

Hope shes ok

she pooped after the fact lastnight, but like 10 minutes after. she hasnt gone outside yet this morning. She just ate her breakfast and were about to go for a walk. shes not acting any differently though. I will still call the vet as soon as they open this morning (its only 5am here right now) I was worried about her all night and couldnt sleep but of course there she was next to me snoring away. Thanks Donna!

my Boston had a system that could process anything... he pooped them out... (back in the day when such items were generated in the house where we lived)... keep an eye on "things" I'd say.

Well I called the vet. Spoke with the receptionist. She put the vet on the phone and he gave me options as to what to do. So I scheduled for her to get xrays today to see where it is at. Then we will go from there. I'm a nervous wreck here at work today.

So hoping that things come out all right for Phoebe (sorry, I couldn't resist, but the wish is still there). They do love to get into things and scare us to death. Fingers crossed for good news on the xrays.

My Butchie ( a rescue pug from awhile back who is now RIP) did that once--- I didn't realize it until he pooped it out... And it was clean when he pooped it out (and it WASN'T when it went in)

Clara has gotten a hold of a tampon and has thrown them up. nasty,nasty gross smelling vomit. so have learned my lesson and keep the basket under the counter. But it does make a person nervous until it passes.

Sending many good thoughts for Phoebe and you.

I have several coworkers whose dogs have done this, and every one of them have passed it without needing surgery. Here's hoping Phoebe's the same!



Don't beat yourself up over this -- it could happen to anyone! Frankly, I'm lucky it hasn't happened in my house yet.

I hope there is good news from the vet.



I believe that this is what finally came out of Freddy Jones on 4th of July weekend a few years ago. He had tummy problems for a couple of days, we went to the vet, and it eventually passed on it's own. It was mostly unrecognizable, but there was a very thin string attached. It's the only thing I can think of that it would be. It had obviously been in his system for quite some time, but didn't cause problems until right before it came out.

all is well! We went to the vet had an xray done. The vet believes she chewed it to pieces and will now pass it on her own. he looked at her intestines (in the xray) and you can tell she has poop lined up in there like its supposed to be, but he said one of them looks a little bigger than it normally should so she may have a little bit of a struggle to get it out but she will be just fine, however he wants meto "examine" her poops for the next few days afraid I feel a lot better now that I got her checked out. She was due for her yearly shots and had an appointment for this saturday, but we took care of those while we were in. The bill wasnt near as bad as I thought it would be, so that makes me feel better. Now I just have to remember to keep the bathroom trash can on the counter to avoid this happening again.

Glad all is well! Hope it comes out soon so you don't have to examine poop for days. Bloody tampons and almond rocca kitty litter are favourite delicacies of Pugs. Makes me glad I have gone through menopause and don't have cats.

Glad your baby is going to be o.k.!

I'm sure many of the more crafty pugs in this group could figure out how to use them, but I have a Simple Human step-can in my bathroom, (so it has a lid, you step on the lever to open) to prevent pug foraging. Laughing (Plus, I only have one bathroom, so I prefer not to have everyone looking at the trash! Yuck!) I got it at Bed Bath and Beyond.

Glad all is going to be ok!! I use to work with someone who's beagle (crafty little breed) ate a tampon. Unfortunately he had to have surgery. He was fine after, but the cotton expanded and he couldn't pass it.

We have those types of trashcans in all our bathrooms! My two have never paid attention to the bathroom trash, but I just like it covered.

So now you get to be an official PI (Poop Inspector)! I hope you "discover" the evidence soon for even more peace of mind!

Thanks ladies. I may have to look into a can in the bathroom with a lid. I hope she's not crafty enough to learn to open it. I haven't found anything in her poop yet, but she has been pooping more than normal. I'm sure I look like a crazy lady walking my dog then looking in the poop bag to see what's in there...haha. There's a lady who walks her fish (no lie what so ever) and now I look at my dogs poop...I swear I live in an apartment not a nut house!
