It is prolapsed also on the bottom. I didn't want to push it back in until I'm sure that it's clean and the bleeding has stopped. We have her set up in a wire dog crate. I bought Vetericyn Plus Wound and Skin Care, Vetericyn Plus Antimicrobial Hydrogel and BlueKote. Might be a little overkill like the hubby said, but I want to cover everything!
Would it be safe to do the warm epson salt bath tomorrow or should I wait for the bleeding to stop and scab over? (it has slowed) And at what point should I push the prolapsed vent back in? She has had 3 small bowel movements.
I just got home from work and am going to check her before I go to bed, so ill let you know about the bleeding.
We got an egg from her yesterday before we pulled her from the coop, so I know she's not egg bound. I'm going to just spray the area with epson salt water to clean it. I also stopped by the store on my way home to get some PreparationH.
Should I have her on an antibiotic for this?
Update: Queen Latifahs' prolapsed vent stopped bleeding, thank God. We took her out to be with the girls for 30 min and she showed her dominance (she's the Queen). She seems to be feeling well but she also ran for the coop and jumped in the favorite nest box! We let her hang out with the girls for a bit.
We took her back into the garage where we have her cage set up. I used a water bottle and poked a hole in the top of the lid so I could spray it with some pressure. She seemed to not mind it after a couple of minutes.
I got the prolapse to go back in but it came back out a couple of minutes after I set her down on the floor. I didn't want to wrap her since she's possibly going to lay an egg. So we're going to limit her sunlight to stop that process.
The hubby is going to check on her and make sure the area is moist since I work graves and it's my bedtime. Keep your fingers crossed that all goes well!
@Wyorp Rock I have tablets of Ciproflaxin 500 mg for humans. I can call my vet and see if he'd help me out! What do you recommend?
Also, her poop is still solid, but the uric acid seems watered down and a bit slimy, what do you think is causing that?
She is separated and partially covered. My hubby says her new name is Jail Bird Thank you so much for your expertise, we (Queen Latifah and I) appreciate it so very much!!!
