My Bernese Mountain Dog is 10 weeks old and has a small heria (belly button area). The breeder said that we should massage it several times per day and eventually as it muscles strengthen, it will go away. Well it's 10 weeks now and I'm not sure how long they usually last? Any ideas? I do have a vet apt in 2 weeks but I don't want to have them perform surgery unless absolutely necessary.

Hopefully the vet will know what to do. Otherwise, just listen to the breeder and massage the belly of your Bernese Mountain Dog. He could be right.
