I have had hernias disappear with manipulation but I wonder if they might have closed any way. I'd never know.
As I posted before, there's no real problem as its unusual for these hernias to cause troubles. I'm sure Elaine willl confirm this.
Yes, I too have had a bitch operated on as the opening had started to close when she was 12 years old. It was a very simple op and once the stitches had gone you wouldn't know there had been anything there!! The UK KC frowns on these ops now.
Helena, i am aware the KC frown on these ops and isn't it wrong.
It could encourage people to not have things fixed . Why on earth should an op like this prevent a Dog from being shown, it's madness.
For me the Dogs health would always come first , but i still think they're wrong.
Whoops sorry to rant:o
