Q. Went to vet for vommiting had xrays and blood work. Blood not back xray shows the large intenstine dipping downwards. Possible mass orwhat else could

Answered By

A. Mass sounds highly likely. Depending upon the look of all the intestines there is a possibility that there is a foreign body in another part of the intestines pushing the rest down but it is unlikely that would be a obvious dip down in the intestines. It sounds like an ultrasound or exploratory laparotomy is the next stage.
