Prolapse in Indian Runner - Page 2

post #11 of 13

That's great it seems to be going back in!

 

Is there any way you could bring one of her friends in with her? Ducks typically don't do well alone, but will often calm down if they have a friend brought in with them. They might both be nervous at first, but will hopefully calm down when they realize they are safe and not alone. Try to keep them in a nice, quiet place.

I'm still a little concerned about one piece on her vent but maybe this is just part of the healing process. Here's what she looks like tonight:





Her tail is on the left side of the picture to give orientation. The piece is attached to the tail side of her vent and is circular in nature. It fits into the vent but is still a little more visible than I see on my other ducks.

I'm wondering if I should try to take her to a vet tomorrow or continue to treat as I have been doing and give it time to heal.

When I went to push it back in after taking this pic, she was able to contract her vent and pull it inside where there was not really anything for me to push in. Of course she was a little tense anyway at the moment.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

I would bring her in for a look.  It appears she is headed in the right direction.  I would not give up on her.  Some vets are too quick to give up on animals - I would just caution you not to listen if that's the case.  But some vets can give good advice on how to proceed.
