Could it be worms? Or over feeding?

How old are they?

they are 4 weeks old... have already been treated for worms....
the lump is sort of flat... feels like a raised area and starts just after the ribs end and is about the size of a large thumbnail.... it's not hard.... just like raised....

Hi,

this could be an umbillical hernia, though at the end of the day you'll have to get a vet to take a look at your kittens.

Odd. Humans have the spleen there, I believe. Probably cats too.

Can it be their spleen is swollen up, enlargened??

Are they otherwise entirely healthy? If you feel on these raisings, does it seems hurt them?

I think you should consider contacting a vet if there are also any other alarming signals.



Good luck!
