Q. wt lose vmt dx IBD i can feel tonight on her R side of her abd thats about 2in or more long has a rope like or crushed stones, varicose feeling

A. I believe this is a duplicate post so I will make the same recommendation as before.
Sounds like a potential cancerous mass. If your pet is intact (not spayed) or was spayed after 1 year of age and the mass appears to be involved with the mammary glands then there is a high chance this could be cancerous. I would recommend having this looked at by a vet so that proper samples are taken and/or it can be removed and sent of for analysis
