    Default Amber's at the vet

    And I'm a mess LOL When I got Amber, she had a reducible hernia that always worried me that she'd get something stuck into, so finally I've decided that despite the wishes of the lady I got her from (who still co-owns Amber). I was going to go ahead and have it repaired and forget about showing her for a while. My friend who I got Amber from really wants to see her shown, but I just wasn't comfortable leaving that hernia like that - Besides, she really needed a dental, and I had putting a dog under anesthetic, so I figured I might as well kill two birds with one stone!

    I can't wait to hear back from the vet to find out how she did!

    Good luck, I'm sure she'll be fine Was it an umbilical hernia? My little Truman has a small one, and my vet said that since it's so small he wouldn't want to do anything to fix it until I had him neutered - then he would fix it, but more for aesthetic reasons, not health reasons, since it's so small. Let us know how the surgery goes!

    my charlie had a strangulated hernia when she was younger. the vet sent her home with antibiotics , said it was just an infection , but I brought her back & insisted they operate.

    The vet of course said it wasn't bad at all. the nurse who I spoke to first however said they'd had an awful job with her.

    its the only time i've ever seen my girl quiet & not wanting a walk.

    Her breeder told me when I got her that it would never strangulate.
