Bulging sack on puppy stomach?

asked 2021-07-11 11:06:04 -0600

Is this normal to have a small bulging sack on my puppy stomach? It comes and goes and is not always there. I'm kind of thinking this might be her bladder? She is a 10 week old Dachshund puppy.

I’d get her check out. Likely an umbilical hernia.

It really sounds like a hernia. Please take her to a vet

Likely an umbilical hernia. Make an appointment with a vet to confirm. You may be able to address this as a virtual appointment.
