I originally posted this question on the rescue dogs page as I read that Randy was being rehomed as he is unsuitable as a breeding dog as his puppies were born with hernais. I've realised that I was asking the question on the wrong section as it has nothing to do with re-homing!
So,could somebody tell me a bit more about hernias - are there different types?
Both my Cavalier's have what I was told are small umbilical hernias. So far they haven't caused any problems - they are just little "bumps". I didn't even register it as a problem really. When we got Rufus my vet said that I shouldn't breed from him because of the hernia (we don't breed anyway) but until then I hadn't given it much thought.
Neither of the breeders mentioned made much of it.
I'd just like to know a bit more for future reference.
Thanks for your help.
