If it is a lump that isn't moving and she isn't passing feces, then
she might have eaten something that she should not, so CALL
YOUR VET NOW -- SPEAK WITH THE VET EVEN IF IT TAKES A
CALL-BACK RATHER THAN WITH A RECEPTIONIST, and ask
the vet if Monday will be soon enough. It worries me that she
has not passed any stool because that points to a potentially
very dangerous blockage. Full blockages can NOT be put-off for
treatment -- not even a day or two.
Is she eating and drinking?
I also sent this to you privately because I don't want you to miss
it; we all hear of too many killed by blockages when there wasn't
a fast jump for correction.
