Umbilical hernia

Postby mynutmeg » Sat Jun 01, 2013 11:17 am

I noticed yesterday that the area around Milo's umbilical cord looked a little swollen so I took a closer look and the top is a yellowy colour. Wasn't sure about it so I spoke to the vet who thinks it may be a hernia and to keep an eye on it.
Today it's more swollen.
Any thoughts? He's 3 weeks old today, stump was treated immediately after birth/breaking, no probs since other than this. In the pic there is some light pink streaks in the hair - thats the rements of the spray from birth, I've re-sprayed tonight jsut to be safe.
Am thinking I'll phone the vets on monday and email them the pic and see what they think but thoughts please

Blazer developed an umbilical hernia and it was HUGE! We had it surgically repaired when he was 5 months old. Having your vet check it is your best bet. They can advise you as to what it is, if & when it would need repair and so on. Keep us posted!
