When I got my RES out of her land setup she had poop on her bum and some litte pieces of grass was stuck to it. I\'m afraid it might cause a blockage and well she might die. What can I do to prevent this problem? I need help ASAP.

Had she eaten the grass or did she pick it up from walking around? If she shows any signs not being able to defecate or if any blood/unusual substance comes out of her, it would be good to take her to a vet. An x-ray would determine whether or not there is a blockage.
