Hi, this is Dr. Hill. So tampons are one of the more common foreign bodies that we see in dogs. Since Rocco is a french bulldog it is unlikely that he will be able to naturally pass the tampons. My recommendation is that you take him to a local emergency clinic so that they can induce vomiting (if it has been less than 2 hour since ingestion) or put him on fluids and monitor the passage. Hope this helps. Take care.
