Almost every puppy in maggies litter was born with a puppy hernia.
I THINK (and dont quote me cause i coulda been wrong) The breeder said that it was because mum was in too much of a hurry when they were born.
i was never very concerned..oliver had one..and i loved his.. his little 'belly button' as we called it. and im pretty sur we got it removed when he was nutered.

when i had maggie at the vet on thursday..she said it would get removed during spaying..that it wa sa little on the larger side..and for this reason there was a little concern that her intestines could fall into it?!?!?

I had THE WORST night mare about that lastnight..i dreamed it popped, and that there was a gaping hole in her belly..and things and blood were everywhere...
It was horrible.
