    Hello,
    I have a 6 month old puppy that has an Umbilical Hernia. Should I have that repaired? He is getting Neutered Tuesday Dec. 30. I"m so scared for him. I just wanted to know if it was nesscessary to fix that. I hate to see him have surgery if he didn't need it? Please let me know your views.
    Thanks,
    Kim

    I would have it repaired Kimber if it were me. I don't know much about those but I would imagine that it may be painful and could lead to more problems down the line. But that's me and I'm sure others will chime in on this one. You should call your vet and see what they think and since he is getting neutered next week they could do that at the same time. If it can wait that is.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Hi,
    Thanks for your input. I think I will call the vet tomorrow and have that added on to the Neuter. I just hate to see him having surgery. Oh well, better get done now; than later.
    Have a great night,
    Kimbr

    Thank you for the information

    Hi HDrydr,
    Thank you for the web site. I just finished reading it and I will have to ask my Vet. about it. Duncan has a small one. Maybe he won't have to go though hernia surgery.
    Thanks again, I really appreciate it!

    Hernia closed on it's own.. Yeah

    Hi everyone,
    I just wanted to let you know that Duncan's hernia closed on its own. So, he didn't have to have Hernia Surgery after all. I was so relieved! He did get neutered yesterday and micro-chiped. Poor little guy is a little sore today. My husband slept on the floor with him last night. He felt so bad for our little baby. So, Happy New Year everyone and thanks for all the input!
