Luckily, I had been reading about other prolapses that had been posted on this sight and I think I caught it early. I think she is going to be OK. We had visitors out in the yard and Bobbi (~6 YO australorp) was standing funny. She looked like she was trying to lay an egg standing up in the middle of the yard. I looked behind her and she was prolapsed, not a lot but enough. We did the following: 1) Caught her gently and held her quiet. I put a towel over her head until she relaxed. 2) I used vegetable oil for lubrication and tried to gently push everything back in while feeling around for any eggs that might be stuck. I thought I felt an egg and tried to get to it but there was tissue between my finger and the solid object. 3) Our visitor is a 2nd year vet student and had a class in prolapses last year. She said to use something else for lubricant and we tried Vaseline. I still could feel the object but could not make contact. The prolapse was still evident. 4) We put her in our chick play pen for a little while to let her get over the trauma of #3. She ate and drank and seemed to be better. She still occasionally stood like she was trying to lay and egg. 5) I sent DH for KY, antibiotics and yogurt. 6) I filled the sink with warm water and held Bobbie in it until it got cool. Took her out, filled the sink again and put her back. She would not quite sit down in the water so I used a wash cloth to keep warm water on her vent. I also cleaned up the poop that had collected under her vent. Halfway through the second soak, the prolapse was back inside. She appeared to be a bit inflamed and the skin seemed a bit stretched. I was amazed at how well she took the bath. I had not really handled her since she was given to me a year and a half ago. She is acting like I do it every day! 6) I put her into the cat carrier with a towel over it to lower the light. I crushed 2 Tums and put it in ~2 cups of water. When DH got back, I lubed her vent inside and out with KY. I could not locate the solid-feeling mass any more. I massaged her under her back side and on her back. My DH was rubbing her chest. She seemed to be enjoying the attention. I put her back into the carrier and gave her some yogurt with layer feed and bird seed in it and let her rest. She ate most of the feed. 7) We checked her after an hour and a half. The prolapse still seemed to be back in but she was a bit swollen, possibly from the above trauma. She is calm and not lethargic. We put her in a larger box where she can stand up and move a bit with a cover over it so it will stay dark until morning. She has what is left of her Tums water and feed. I plan to leave her alone until tomorrow morning. 8) I plan to start the antibiotics in the AM. They only had them in concentrations that will require a fraction of an ounce/gallon. How did I do? How could I improve on this? I was incredibly lucky to catch it early. I think it just happened. Thank for any input.
