Default Umbilical Hernia

Hi all.

I am hoping for some advice. We have a 17 week old female GSD and it seems on her belly button a small umbilical hernia has developed. Its about the size of a large grape/cherry tomato. It doesn't seem to bother her at all even when we have touched it. She isn't scratching at it or licking - I don't even think she knows its there! I am pretty sure its only developed into that size in the last day or 2 as its easily noticeable when rubbing her belly.

Any advice or insight from people who have had GSDs with this before?
