Dog Hernia

Dog recovering after hernia surgery


Just like humans, a Dog Hernia is a condition in which abdominal contents protrude through the abdominal wall at the area of the umbilicus.

Small hernias are generally not a problem. It is recommended to electively repair larger hernias due to the risk of intestinal loop strangulation. Symptoms include soft abdominal mass at area of umbilicus, larger painful hernia sac that may be warm to the touch, vomiting, abdominal discomfort or pain, anorexia and depression.


Surgical treatment may be necessary if your veterinarian finds the need to close the opening or needs to attach the stomach to the abdominal wall.

Cost to Treat: $750 to $2,000
