So you can still induce vomiting with hydrogen peroxide. I would give three teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide and then run Stella around so that her stomach shakes up.

Also, did she eat any breakfast this morning?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
All breakfast and playing fine.
Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 9 months ago.

I would still try to make her throw it up. She is not very big and a tampon could easily cause an intestinal obstruction in her.
