    ....but he's trying very hard to do that himself!

    When you get home in the morning after a night shift, desperate to go to bed, leave Sprout to his own devices for 5 minutes and come back to a shredding disaster. After frantically counting the leftovers, it appears he's eaten one. Explaining this to the vet over the phone was just slightly embarrassing! Advice was to keep a close eye on him and bring him in at the first sign of vomiting or discomfort. Touch wood, so far he seems absolutely fine, but with going to check every time there was a noise from his crate and listening to the cat trying to break down the bedroom door, it has not exactly made it a good day on the sleep front! (And yes, this post should probably come with a TMI alert)

    Yup! I suspect whoever was in the waiting room when I rang the vets, got a good giggle. "Used or unused?", "Applicator or non-applicator?", "What size?", "Is the applicator missing?" - not embarrassing at all! :eek:

    Don't know - was sort of thinking they might be more slippery and easier to pass if "pre-inflated"! ;)

    Oh man, been there unfortunately.

    When my dog was about 12 weeks old she ate a used sanitary towel - thankfully she then proceeded to regurgitate it whole 20 minutes later.

    Eevee and Stan share them..

    Eevee chews applicator and Stan gets to rip up the actual tampon...

    It's happened a few times. Eevee kindly stashes them under our bed.to share another day...but fortunately or unfortunately they don't get consumed!

    Haha well that's one awkward phone call!!! Hopefully it will not cause any major problems and he will pass it without issues... I think my only more embarrassing phone calls were about Axel eating a tube of nappy rash cream (including the tube) and the previous incident with cotton buds I used to remove nail polish o_O dogs do have a weird taste...
    but I can make you feel better: a few days ago a 3 yo in one of the nurseries I work at brought a vibrator and played sword fighting with other boys with it :Hilarious I'll rather call my vet about tampon eating dog than get a phone call from a nursery asking if my vibrator is missing :Jawdrop:Bag

    The only time I knew Alfie had eaten one was when he went for a poo and out popped a lump of poo attached to the end of a piece of blue string followed by a dirty white cotton wool sausage :eek::Hungover:Banghead

    Couldn't work out why there was a problem until I read on

    Oh wow, that's pretty alarming and awkward at the same time.

    Hope your dog's fine

    I thought all men had read the information leaflet a thousand times whilst sat on the toilet...I even gave a couple of leaflets to my gay friends a few years ago, who felt they had missed out on the experience!

    Even once had to by for my mother in law when she stayed with us after her knee op... Not the nicest thing to have to buy

    Been there with my first dog. He knicked one from the bin.

    Crapped it out a few days later. At an agricultural show. In full view of of a LOT of people.

    Thankfully, i dont think anyione noticed.

    the phone call to the vet was more embarrassing. Especially as it was to a man, and i was rather young and temporarily forgot what a bloody tampon was called and referred to it as 'bullet bit'.
