|Ditto Maggie. I have seen a few terrible obstructions caused by dogs eating tampax and kotex. The problem is that they are made to absorb liquids so as they are trying to pass through the digestive system they are absorbing fluids within the system and eventually getting stuck. Of course they can pass right through so IMHO I would keep an extremely good eye on your pup, or to be on the safe side maybe take him to the vet and snap a few xrays, certainly cannot hurt.
Watch for any vomiting, lethargy, not wanting to eat, anything out of the ordinary for your pup and then get him to the vet asap.
Sorry, being a Vet Tech I guess I can get a little over cautious. I have seen a ton of weird things that have obstructed so I get worked up quite easily.
I hope your pup is good and the tampon will just slide right through. Oh! never pull any string if it is seen coming from the rectum, get him to the vet and let they deal with it.
Silly dogs, why oh why would they eat a tampon, sooooo...gross.
