Dog hernia after spay. What is the most likely cause?

A few days ago, my cat got fixed. Yesterday evening, I came home and found her on her side, trying to crawl to the back door and escape. She had also been in pn, but had not wanted to me to do anything to help her (I didn't want to wake my husband up.) I picked her up and got her inside. I was pretty concerned about her as she was not her normal healthy self. I gave her some milk and some TLC. I also checked her belly. It was pretty clear that she had a hernia. She couldn't bend her front legs because they were curled up. I was scared because this looked really bad. She is a medium sized cat, but she is really scrawny and only weighed 9 pounds. She is a year and a half old. My husband and I have only had her for a year. This surgery took place about a year and half ago. She had a spay. I am not sure what the surgeon used for the anesthetic or if she had to go through it twice.

I was wondering if the surgery was a major factor or if it was a minor problem. We have never had any other health problems. This is the first time this has ever happened. The surgery was done about a year and a half ago. She was a spayed female, and she has always had a clean bill of health and has always had great energy.

We live in a small apartment and the cat is out in our yard all the time.

I have been looking at the internet for info on this problem, and there is a lot of info on different types of hernias. I am just not sure what is the best choice of treatment for this problem. I don't want to have to have surgery.

I am so sorry your little girl got into trouble. As long as she is not showing any signs of infection or discomfort I think you can just follow a few tips that are not invasive:

I would not have her put on a heating pad or heat lamp at all, she may have pn due to swelling in the area from surgery.

If she is getting up on a surface with a hard surface she is trying to use for scratching then you can keep a towel on the floor in the room and try to keep the room as dry as possible.

I would take her to the vet and have them take a look at her. If it is a small hernia the vet can do a scope and can then treat her with antibiotics to prevent infection.

Thank you for your response. I am very thankful that she is doing so well.

I guess I would really like to hear what people would suggest. The surgery was a year and a half ago, and there has not been any problems at all since then. I don't think this hernia problem has affected her health in any way. The vet was the one that took care of her for the surgery. I guess my real question is whether she should have surgery, or if there is a non-invasive way to fix it?

Thanks so much for the reply. I think she just has a small hernia, or just some type of swelling. Her belly has always been flat, and she doesn't look swollen. It was pretty obvious to me when I saw her that she had something wrong with her. I don't think she is in any kind of pn, just seems to be in discomfort. We had no idea there was anything wrong, other than she wouldn't bend her front legs when I picked her up.

I was thinking of just having the vet look at her. We are a little worried about surgery because the last time we had her fixed was over a year and a half ago, and there has not been any problems since then. I am not sure if this is something that was caused by the surgery or if it just happened on its own. I have had her spayed a few times in the past, but this was the first time the vet actually did it for us.

Thank you for all of the info on this. I will take her in on Saturday to have her looked at.

I had the same thing happen to my dog a couple of years ago. After a year of watching him struggle to even get up from where he was lying in his bed, I called the vet. He sd that he thought it was some fluid on the top of his liver. It was actually something more than that, but it was something the vet could do nothing about. He also suggested some home treatment (he was not able to tell me much more than that, other than he could "treat" it).
