Default Puppy with hernia

I was wondering, how serious is a small umbilical hernia in a standard poodle puppy ?

Can it be easily corrected during spay/neuter and if is it tremendously expensive ? Is it ever "not fixable ?

Thanks in advance

Vienna has this, she had it when I got her, it looks like she just has an outie belly button lul, I've never worried about it, and I forgot about it when she was spayed.

I don't think it is a huge issue, but I am certainly not an expert! When I purchased Millie, I was deciding between two different brown puppies, Millie and a brownie boy, both had fabulous personalities. The boy was actually already neutered though because they did surgery to fix the hernia and neutered him during the procedure. I almost picked that boy but didn't because I didn't want a puppy that was neutered pediatrically. I wouldn't worry too much about a hernia though.

I just talked to my mom and she said when she picked out Henry there was a puppy in his litter with a hernia. It sounds like maybe it is relatively common?

I groom dozens of dogs who have a small hernia, it's never a problem for them at all. There's only ever been one I was concerned about; it was larger and you could actually push it back in and feel the hole in the abdominal wall! Every other one I've seen is just like an outie belly button, it's small and you can't push it back in, it just sits there perfectly fine. You can definitely get it fixed easily during a spay too if you're worried at all!

hahahahaha! Yeah, I've mistakenly held a dog with a hernia and an unspecific name and thought it was a boy by the bump.... until doing a sanitary. lmao!

Jasper had one too. The vet took care of it during his neuter surgery for an additional $15! I thought that was a bargain

My vet feels that the hernias that easily pop back in are the easiest ones to fix. Those that are unmovable are the hardest to repair. I think they are only a problem on a breeding bitch. The extra weight in her belly can cause trouble.

One of my pups has it.
He will have it fixed when he gets neutered and it is not a expensive procedure.
