Overview of a Canine Hernia

Cavalier King Charles Spaniels

Toy Poodles

Hernias are common in puppies and can occur in a variety of ways. The good news is most are easily treatable. 

A hernia occurs when abdominal organs or fatty tissue protrude through a weak spot in the muscle or the connective tissue. 


Different Puppy Hernias

2022: If a puppy hernia is identified while the pup is with CameronCavs then CameronCavs will pay for the operation and you will have a letter to confirm that we will pay the cost.  Sometimes it is recommended by the vets to leave a hernia operation until the pup is 6 months old or in for being neutered.
