Subject: RE: [ferrethealth] Swollen area on right side of tummy-What is it?
Message-Id: <[]>


Do you mean a swelling on the skin, or actually inside his body?
Does it feel quite hard, or soft when you gently press on it?

One of my jills (only 8 months old at the time) had a swelling on the right side. Hers felt quite hard, and I knew that there was definitely something wrong internally. It turned out to be a blocked ureter and she had emergency surgery to remove the right kidney.
She's now over 2yrs old and still as wild as ever.
This doesn't seem that common though, so hopefully your little one won't have that problem.

Good luck at the vets - I hope all goes well for you both.
