Default Little bump on Sonnys belly...?!

Hiya!
I've just noticed Sonny has a small bump on his belly, above his little peeper! Wasn't there before!! It doesn't hurt him when I mess with it, but I'm freaking out now!! I'm working tomorrow but planning on trying to get a late vet appt to get it looked at!!

I'm soo worried now!!!

If he's a puppy, that's my first thought too. I'd take home to get checked just in case. My shih tzu had one of those- they fixed it when he got neutered.

It's probably an umbilical hernia, can you press on it gently and see if it goes flat? it's not really life threatening if it's tiny just watch it, and mention it to your vet when you take him in for his shots ( I assume soon?) if not get it checked soon, just to make sure..

Pupluv is right, they usually repair these easily during spay/neuter

He had his first injection Friday and we go again next Friday. I can push on it and it goes kind if flat but he squeela when i push it! I may call vet tomorrow just to get it looked at. He's so small and teeny that I worry over every little bit

That definitely looks like a hernia. Have your vet check to make sure its not going to cause problems and then get it repaired when he is neutered. Some hernias can strangulate. Most don't.
