I was told yesterday that my 12 week old labrador puppy has a 'innie' and hence the reason she keeps licking to keep clean. Also got told that this is a birth defect and may or maynot self correct.
I am so disappointed with the breeder (and also their vet) who conveniently overlooked the issue (or did not inform us?). I am quite concerned about the sequelae associated with it. I was hoping to spay her just prior to coming into season but for this condition it appears that she will need to be spayed after the first heat (thus risking development of mammary tissue and cancers related). In addition is the constant risk of urinary tract infections and possible future incontinence.
Has anybody faced this situation?
Looking forward to some feedback.
