Hernia Between the Pericardium and Peritoneum in Cats


Treatment

 

Surgery is typically required to close the hernia and place the viable organs to their normal location. However, if found in adult cats displaying no adverse symptoms, no treatment is required.

 

Living and Management

 

Prognosis is good for cats that have undergone surgery with no other complicating factors.
