    Default Herniated Umbilical Cord

    I was wondering if anyone has any info about this issue....Louie is 8 1/2 months old and i knew he had this since the day we got him. It don't seem to bother him at all or cause any issues or discomfort either, I just have to push it back in every so often. My regular vet told me it would have to most likely be fixed, which I figured. he has not been to the Bulldog guru vet yet I have to set that appt up for his check up before scheduling his neutering.... Any info and thoughts on this would be appreciated

    Hi! Ruggles had one since birth and we had it fixed when we neutered him at 5 or 6 mos.!

    Talulah was born with one and she got it repaired when she got spayed. I was under the impression that a hernia shouldn't be left for too long,because something more serious could develop.
