Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello and thank you for using this site to help you.
When did he eat the tampon?
Has there been any lack of interest in food or has there been any vomiting?
thank you for that information. It may be stuck in the intestinal tract in which case you would need an x ray to be sure. The fact that you are saying he is having a hard time jumping and it hurts for him to be in the position to go to the bathroom may be indicative of a disc problem not the fact that he ate the tampon.
What I would do as long as there is eating and no vomiting diarrhea etc is give some pure canned pumpkin to help the tampon pass. About two tablespoons in the am and pm
I would also try an anti inflammatory drug like aspirin with complete be crate rest. Only give this if he is not on any other NSAID from the vet such as Rimadyl. If it is a disc issue then the aspirin and strict rest should help.
Here is dosing for aspirin. http://www.petplace.com/article/drug-library/library/over-the-counter/acetylsalicylic-acid-aspirin
