cometdust1 Posted August 29, 2013 Share Posted August 29, 2013 About a week ago, after my greyhound (Jeep) had been running in the dog park, He was lying down and suddenly jumped up doing the GSOD and looking very pained. It seemed to subside after a few minutes and I figured he just cramped up after running. 2 days later it happened again,he was also laying down this time, only this time it was more severe.He was trying to run away from the pain and kept turning around and biting near his penis, crying the whole time. I couldn't get near him until he calmed down a bit, he's not a biter in any way but this time he kept snapping at me because the pain was bad. I finally got the chance to check him and he had what appeared to be a balled up muscle about midway between his last rib and his penis just right of the midline of his abdomen. I checked the area about 1/2 hour later and it was back to normal.I felt no difference between the left and right side and he did not appear to have any tenderness to the area.He's been fine until late last night, it happened again. I felt the same lump, about 11/2 inches big. Again, it went back down on it's own. This morning, it happened again. It always occurs after he is lying down; it always resolves itself after a few minutes; and Jeep always seems fine after it happens. He had a dental on Monday and I don't know if they stretch them out on their back to do the dental; maybe that or coming out of anesthesia aggravated it again? I have not been running him to give it a chance to heal. Has anybody else had this happen to their hound? Could it be something else? Can they get hernias(other than umbilical which this is not)? Should I be concerned or just give it more time to heal along with continued restricted activity? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
