Inguinal, Scrotal Hernia in Horses

Inguinal hernias are acquired or inherited. Some can cause colic; the scrotum of animals with colic should be palpated. Intestine entering the inguinal ring might be palpable on internal examination. In females can cause dystocia. Congenital hernias can be self limiting by 3-6 months in horses. Castration of an animal with an inguinal hernia can be followed by eventration (evisceration). In horses eventration might follow castration even in the absence of an obvious inguinal hernia.
