Default Strange body shape?

We have just noticed this weird shape of arnies body. It doesn't hurt him to touch, it isn't a lump, his eating drinking toilet habits haven't changed. We are calling the vets first thing. He hasn't changed in the slightest but we are really concerned! Anyone else experienced this at all?! It's a strange one I know so any input is appreciated. Thanks xx

Sorry, the picture is too dark to see anything. Good luck with the vets.

As far as I can see there is nothing wrong. He is getting broad shoulders, which makes his tummy look small and not in proportion.

It looks like his left rib cage protrudes more? Could he not be standing straight? I do see what you are noticing but don't have any idea if it is a problem.

I think the OP is referring to the back end. Looks swollen from the pics, although difficult to see for sure.

Any update on the vet visit?

Maybe a sting or bite from something? Swollen, inflamed muscle?
