    The most recent time I saw a vet she said the hernia is very small and there is no risk of intestines getting stuck or anything...she said it could close on its own. I want to have it fixed at the same time as the neuter for Winston's safety...and my stress level lol I am so worried about it already. I am just unsure when I should have the neuter done. The vet wanted to neuter him at 6 months and I told her I wanted to wait until 12 months as per my breeders advice. I am hearing 12 months or18 months...I just want to make sure I am doing the right thing for him.

    I would just go with whatever feels "right" to you ... cos you're going to get a boat-load of different answers depending on what everybodys views are.

    For us, Daddy and Linus both were neutered at approx 5-6 months but that's because I couldn't take the humping any longer!!! Daddy just turned 2 and still seems to be getting broader across the chest. Linus is only just 1yrs old, and has stopped growing up and is visibly filling out now all over. Who knows if I've stopped them being as big as they could have been ... I just feel happier having them neutered.

    Tank had a umbilical hernia also. Our vet suggested waiting cause it was small. We waited and it corrected itself and there has been no issues.

    Hello:

    Totally agree, but with my own personal experience, Vegas is almost 4 and this last year his chest area got even broader. I thought he was done.

    Haha but isn't the consensus that Vegas is anything but a "standard" bulldog?
