Good morning,
My Boxer Charlie was just diagnosed yesterday with a Perineal Hernia, he is 7 and intact. His vet says either surgery or basically put him down. They say the odds of infection or recurrence are high. This boy is my 3rd child, best dog I have ever had in my life, this is tearing me up so bad. Has anyone had any experience with this? The surgery is over $3000, he's lost a lot of weight and I know he is hurting. This is such a hard decision.

I am so sorry you are going through this. First off you will have to neuter your boy as this only happens in intact dogs and it is hormonal. If you don’t neuter him and still go ahead with the surgery, there is a high chance of it reoccurring.

Its a difficult decision to make, my heart goes out to you ❤
