Ferret vomited and has a small bruise/mass near abdomen,

Customer Question

Ferret vomited and has a small bruise/mass near abdomen, it's on the skin and moves with skin. Don't know if it is connected. She was happy and fine but then vomited brown substance with food.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the ferret?
Customer: Just noticed it all today about 2 hours ago and ferret is now resting. Still drinks but afraid to feed.

Is there any chance that she might have consumed foreign material such as fabric, part of a toy, etc.
