    @JAKEISGREAT Trump is a northern word for farts in England ... so I'm guessing that @stuartgerrard85 is very close to a couple of our other wonderful members @karenben and @Lucy-licious!

    I'm guessing your vet thinks it's an umbilical hernia. I think if it were anything serious that they would have done x-rays. Remind me again ... how old is Fletcher??? I'm thinking fairly young so the vet may be hoping that the hernia may just close up which I believe can happen but it's a slim chance. It would be up to you then to decide if the hernia was in any way life threatening. I have a shih-tzu poodle mix and she has an umbilical hernia. We got her in England and brought her over to Ohio with us when we moved. The vet we went to in England said it was not life threatening and so to not worry about it unless we wanted to breed her in which case it could cause problems.

    By the way... where in England are you from???

    Mornin, @staurtgerrard85 hoping your boy is ok...does sound like an umbillical hernia. Is your current vet familiar with bulldogs? If not search bulldog rescue .uk
    you will find they have a list of reccomended bulldog vets, there may be one close to you. Keep us posted on how he is and where are you, I'm manchester way and we have a member from blackpool and one southport and then another from up here but can't quite remember where exactly but def up North xx

    I've never been a fan of Donald Trump so this new information is super funny.

    When you go back make sure you ask him to be more specific...it's ok him shrugging his shoulders like it's nothing after he told you your boy has a lump in his tummy, but you have been worried and muling this over since.
    Did you look at the bulldog rescue site to see if there is a bully vet close to you? I hope he's ok and thanks for the update. Xx
