Correction of an Umbilical Hernia on Cria
They can start out small and through experience the hernia can enlarge by ripping. This needs to be addressed by surgery to close the tear.
Click on photos below to enlarge:
The skin bubbles out around the umbilical in the belly. To measure the hernia,use a finger tip and press gently to measure the hernia under the bulge, if this' gets smaller after few days, it is repairing itself. If the indentation when pressed is getting larger it is opening more, have a vet look at it.
