We are considering adopting a 10 week old male boston pup with a small umbilical hernia. He was just taken to the vet for a routine checkup. Very healthy except for the hernia. I've628818529_1607137354392.jpg attached a pic of it. The vet said it's small and may or may not close up on its own. A surgical intervention mat be needed at the time it's ready to be neutered (can be done at the same time).
Considering we are long term owners of a 14 year old boston who never had any health problems, will this umbilical hernia have any ramifications in his health in the short or long term?
Anyone know if this is a common occurrence among the breed and if it's an easy procedure to correct. We ready like this pup but want to make sure it's something that's relatively benign. He will only be a family pet, no plans on using him as a stud.
