Hi all,
My fiance and I are planning on picking up our 1st pup on next Sunday. Our breeder (who is very respectable) had told us that our pup had an umbilical hernia after birth. It was taken care of surgically by a vet and is anticipated to have no furthur problems with it. We are planning on taking the new pup to a vet 2 days after getting him for his 2nd set of shots and a full "look over." We will obviously bring this matter up to the vet but I was wondering if anyone here has had similar experience or has any advice on the topic. Thanks for all the help already...I have been scouring the site since we have found out we were getting Jameson (the new pup)!!

They do not cause any probelms with the adults or pups. It is caused from the Mother chewing the umbical cord down to short.

Now some say there is a type that is genectic but if you don't plan on breeding I wouldn't give it a second thought.

I have a six month doodle who has a umbilical hernia. When I picked him up from the breeder, she noted it but said it wasn't a problem. The next day I took him to my vet. He said it wasn't a problem and to fix it when he gets neutered. That day is coming this Thursday! I think he is fine. :lol:

Welcome Jameson :) Not to worry, lots of puppies will have umbilical hernias, some go away on their own, others need to be dealt with and it sounds like your breeder did just that. Your breeder could have not said anything to you about it and you would have never known the difference. Be happy that your breeder is up front with you and tells you everything :) Enjoy your new puppy :wink:
