Hard belly-Do I need to panic and call the vet?
Around 1 year old filly, this morning she was laying down flat out taking a death nap but not rolling. Her belly is hard and somewhat distended. She seems uncomfortable when I poke it and is not as energetic as usual. Her stomach does make noise but I haven't noticed her poop today. She has recently moved from boarding to my house. There was some old, well-trampled alfalfa that my goats had been sleeping in in the pen that she may have gotten into, but it doesn't look like anyone has been eating it and the piggy pony gelding who lives with her is fine. Do I need to go ahead and annoy the vet or can it wait until morning? Can I do anything in the meantime?She has clean fresh water and hasn't had grain since this morning. Free access to a round bale of coastal hay. Am I panicking unreasonably? She also has a small umbilical hernia that is scheduled to be fixed the end of this month.
