I have a prolapsed Indian Runner Duck and need some help. When I found it, I soaked her vent in warm Epsom salt soak for 10 min. Then I wrapped her in a towel and gently pushed the prolapse back in with KY jelly. It stayed in a first but then she pooped and it popped back out. So I tried again with Prep H. It stayed in a little longer but when I checked her again, it had started to come back out. I pushed it a little more up inside and put her down. She pooped again and out it came. I pushed back in one more time and put her in a small cat carrier in the dark. She sounded like she was picking at her feathers.
I have tried calling vets today but we have very few avian vets and no one is working after hours on a weekend that will see her. How can I make sure it stays in? How often should I check her to make sure it hasn't popped back out?
Here are some pics.
