We've had Shorty inside for two days, now. She is drinking a little, but not eating. Her poop is solid, black and VERY smelly. I didn't see any urates. I palpated her abdomen, and on her left side I felt something the size and shape of an egg. Is that what's wrong, or is there something else going on that caused a swelling, or is it all of the above?! How do I get the egg out if that is the problem? My van got totaled last Weds., so I'll have to arrange transport to get to TSC. Or do I need supplies from the vet? I'm not squeamish about operating, but I need to know just what to do.
