    The bump will stay there for a little while and will eventually go down.

    I am glad to hear the vet thought it looked normal. Gunny is having his hernia repaired too and this is good info for me.

    I know that your boys are too old for this, now, but when my son, AND two of my pups(not at the same time) were young babies, I put a quarter on the hernia, and wrapped "vet wrap" around them, and every few days checked it, and after awhile, the hernia's closed up. My son was born with two hernia's, and needed surgery for the one, but the belly button closed up! The pup's belly button hernia's also closed up. Of course-they were confirmed by the vet.(yeah, my son had an M.D.) This would need to be done by 8 wks w/pups, if hernia is no bigger than a nickel.

He said the stitches were left a tiny bit loose on the outside because of his breed? But he thinks there is nothing to worry about. So although a bit relieved I'm still in disbelief because I would have thought we'd get antibiotics by now. I'm gonna wait it out a few more days and see what it looks like this weekend, a week after surgery

    no antibiotics? really? Every time my pups had any surgery, antibiotics are given for a couple of days as a precaution... keep us posted Matt!

    Riggins had the same thing. He had his fixed when he was neutered as well. He heal up nicely and now you cannot even see his scar unless you knew it was there. He had the surgery about 3 months ago.
