Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

Thanks for your question and congrats on your new puppy!

Once an inguinal hernia is fixed there shouldn't be any concerns for the dog.

A hernia is a problem where some muscle layers were not holding properly. But, once it is fixed then there is no longer a problem.

Enjoy your new puppy!

Dr. Marie.
