Milkman,

If she doesn't have output and is in pain this would be the sign of either a partial or full obstruction (which is not uncommon). It's best to get her walking to jump start her motility. If it's a partial obstruction you should be able to manage this at home by increasing fluids, eliminating food until it passes, and keep her moving. If she should have extreme pain and vomiting that would be the time to go to the hospital as those are signs of a full obstruction and intervention might be needed.

Ditto what Sue said... also, if she is running a fever - go to the ER. Please let us know how she is doing.
