Hernia ???


Recommended Posts

My 10 month old Lab recently developed a "bump" on her belly section. Was wondering if this sounds like a hernia and if anyone has any experience with this? Also, is surgery always required to fix this or do they sometimes heal with rest? Any other comments/suggestions or experiences would be great. Just found the bump on her underside today...it doesn't seem to be slowing her down any nor is it sore to the touch.

It could be anything from a puncture to a cyst and many other possibilities. Have it had it's annual spring vet appointment yet? If not wait til you go and ask about it. Hernias feel like a waterballoon pushing through the abdomin. Not sure I've ever seen that in dog. If it's red or warm to the touch or shows other signs of infection, bring it in for antibiotics.
