Diaphragmatic Hernia- The muscle wall between the chest and abdomen can develop a hernia (hole) following an accident such as being hit by a car. This can be repaired.
Perineal Hernia- This is more common in un-neutered male dogs and looks like a bulge present to the side of the anus. We use the Internal Obturator Muscle Transposition Technique to surgically repair this hernia. Most cases have a good outcome.
Inguinal Hernia- This hernia presents as an abnormal swelling in the groin area. These hernias can easily be repaired, often during neutering.
