    I had a Springer Spaniel once that had one. The vet didn't do anything. Gordon lived to be 12.

    I hope little Echo is okay. It would break my heart if anything happened and I have never seen him. Praying for him.

    Another up date on Echo, we took him to the vet today and had his hernia's looked at.... Vet said he could feel both holes and that indeed he would need surgery to fix them....but he is to young yet. so I have to keep pushing the hernia back into the hole in his tummy and as long as he is doing as well as he is and as long as I can push his insides back in through the hole we are fine....and we can wait. but if the hole starts to close up ...then no more waiting..... they go back in in two weeks for there first shots and he said he would take another look and talk a little more about when then. Most hernias do fine without doing any thing.... they are not big enough to let any thing come through.... but with Echo you can feel the holes with your finger. so for now....I just have to keep pushing on them and keep them in as much as possible....

    @mom2bullies Thank you for the update. Does not sound too scary as long as you keep pushing back in then? How old does your vet want him to be first before surgery? I am glad it is nothing serious-- yet, is the procedure a fast and unrisky one when the time does come?

    No it doesn't sound to scary....but he is so little and young....vet wants to wait as long as he can, as long as it doesn't start to close up...that is when there could be problems ...if it closes with his inside on the out side. He is talking at the most 4 months old and that is still so little to be put under.

    Yes I would think if you could hold out as long as possible- my babies are 6 months now and seem like they are reaching full size- but yes, they are growing and changing and the immune system is possibly unstable- would not want to do anyfing either. How often do you push it in? Once a day?

    I will keep my fingers crossed that this will all get better soon. Is there a chance it will "heal" on its own? Even with a slim chance, Miracles do happen!! I will be thinking of him and give him a big kiss from Bella for me.

    The dr said to push it in as open as we can...when we hold him, or when we just pick him up, roll him on his back and push it in....

    As you say there are miracles, but the dr seams to think the holes are bigger then most and will not heal on their own....Charie has one too, but it is small and the dr says it is nothing to worry about.... so I am thinking it is just the size of the hole.... And I have noticed that the top hernia seams to be getting bigger rather then smaller.

    Sunbird, I didn't know that, I hope your baby is doing good. Did your dr seam to think it will take care of it self? Will he need surgery later? How big is the hole? Echo's both are bigger then the size of my little finger nail.
