A. He may have a hernia which will need to be repaired at some point either at neutering or sooner if it is causing a problem. I'm expecting that he is due another vaccine soon. If so have it checked then, if not book him in to see your vet sooner rather than later. If he is having diarrhea and no other symptoms you can try a pro biotic paste from your pet store but any other symptoms or bloody diarrhea then see your vet.
