    Default update on our Echo

    I picked up Echo yesterday and noticed that our baby has two hernias on his tummy... one at the top of his scare and one at the bottom.... I called the dr and they said to watch them and bring him in this week when his dr. is in. Has any one dealt with hernias in puppies?

    Sam had a hernia since the day I brought him home when he was just a pup. It was small and never became an issue. It was like as wide as a dime and didn't poke out very far at all. The vet said if it ever looked bigger, started coming out more then they may need to fix it but if not then he would be fine. My vet said they can have it their whole lives and it never become an issue. However it did end up being fixed. Samson swallowed a toy April 2010 (he was 4). Had to be surgically removed and they had to cut thru the area where his hernia was to get the toy out so it was fixed at that time. My neighbor has a boston that had a hernia since she was born. The vet didn't say it was necessary to fix it but she opted to because she worried it was going to become a problem. It got fixed when the boston was like 4 months old. This bostons was much bigger than Samson's (maybe it just looked that way because she is alot smaller obviously being a boston). Popped out bigger than the size of a marble.

    Mom, can you take a picture of it so I can see? And what exactly is a hernia? What is "popping" out?

    As I have been told a hernia is the intestines poking thru your muscles. People get a hernia normally from tearing that muscle so the intestines end up pushing out. For Samson it looked like an outie bully button.

    Can it cut off circulation in the intestines? I'm a little worried about Echo.

    That I'm not sure about. For Samson and the boston I was talking about it was fixed before it ever became a problem.

    They fixed Bertie when she was spayed. Her hernia didn't appear until she was almost 5 months old.
