Default My cat had seven kittens last December. Two of them have quite large hernias and the

I'm so glad to hear your kittens are doing so well. Often times, larger hernias are less serious because they are less likely to trap important organs compared to smaller hernias. They can be trickier to fix though just due to their size. Unfortunately, a belt will likely not help and even if it would, your kitten would likely get it off in the blink of an eye. Now that your kittens are older, they are better candidates for surgery and anesthesia. If there is no "entrapment" within the hernia, you may be able to delay the surgery too. But at some point, surgery is likely going to be needed. The surgery is usually pretty straightforward. Now that your kittens are older, have your veterinarian reassess the hernias again; maybe he will feel more comfortable doing surgery now or perhaps later.
