Newbie to the forum. Hi~!

Is inguinal hernia as common as the umbilical? I've read many posts about the umbilical hernia and that it's not a big deal but there seems to be no posts about inguinal hernia.

I have a 6 wk old puppy (picking up from breeder at 10 wks) and my breeder just informed me today that she developed inguinal hernia. I have a picture of her that shows the "bump" but I don't know how to post a picture on this forum!

I'm wondering if the inguinal hernia is rare (opposed to the umbilical) and perhaps more serious...

Any input/knowledge is appreciated. Thanks!

I agree it's less common and more serious.

I am going to close this duplicate thread as most are replying in the General section.

Just in future: it is preferred just to post in one section rather than duplicate a post in two, as it causes confusion for people who are trying to either search for or follow the topic. :thmbsup:
