Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am not set up to make a live call. But, I am happy to answer your question on this thread.

Friend, the best option is having her re-checked today and not waiting. You see, if the quarter is obstructed in the gastrointestinal tract it can lead to significant inflammation in that segment of the intestines and may lead to irreversible damage or even rupture to that segment with a fatal outcome. For this reason it is best to not wait and have her checked today; she may need surgery to remove the quarter.

Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
