Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** Thank you for your question about Rex. Is he having some gastrointestinal issues? When did he have his last stools? How did they look? When did he last urinate?
This situation is one where the good news is that he's eating and drinking still. The seriousness escalates if they aren't eating / drinking. The bloating that you're seeing could be due to stool backing up. There isn't a lot that can be done at home for this. What would be the best thing to do is to take an x-ray of his abdomen to see if this is stool that is building up or if it could be due to something else. Bloating in the belly in cases I've seen can also be due to masses or fluid in the abdomen.
If he was to stop eating, start vomiting, get uncomfortable or seem stressed - then the urgency raises with this situation. IF he's not being altered in any big way, then it may be ok to continue to see how he does over the weekend and then get him checked on Monday.
