does anyone know mech about umbilical hernias?  Iwas just checking my puppies which are now 8 weeks old and noticed a small lump on the male, which i think could be an umbilical hernia. Any suggestions?

For the most part they are not an issue (in that they dont hurt them).  The only way to properly correct it is with surgery.  There are many people that will leave them alone unless they become a problem because some of the especially the one's by the belly button can stay small.  It is genetic so whoever gets this puppy should not use it for breeding.
