I just dropped off my dog SiSi, a lab, at the vet. Yesterday I found a torn up trash can in the guest bathroom and it appeared she had eaten a tampon. She vomited this am-which I cleaned up and threw out. Later I searched for poops in the yards that looked "fresh" or tampon laden. No success. So the vet thought I should bring her in to have her gut x-rayed and rule out a bowel obstruction. He suggested I also search her vomit, if possible. So after the vet, I drove to the park and dropped off the kids with Bea and came home to excavate. I readily found the offensive heap in the trash can. And upon my autopsy identified 7, read SEVEN, whole tampons. Amazing really. I called the vet and left a message to go ahead with x-ray b/c I am unsure how large the original buffet was, or if there were a few visits over time.
Do you think there is a section for used tampon ingestion by canines in the Guinness Book of World Records.

  1. Oh, poor sweet Sisi. I hope she's going to be okay. Guess I know what to bring next time we want to play fetch.
