    Earlier today, I noticed my favorite duck was not acting like herself. We picked her up and she has prolapsed. We read some advice on here and here's what we have done so far: we let her soak in warm Epsom salt water for an hour, my husband coated the organ with Preparation H, then he put some KY jelly on it and gently pushed it back inside. We put her in a small dog kennel and not even five minutes later, she pooped and it came right back out. We pushed it back in but we don't know what to do now. Right now its in but i dont know for how long. Please help. [​IMG]

    She's so much worse this morning. It's the size of an egg now and she's is barely moving.i don't know if an egg is in there or what to do to save her. I don't want to lose her. She's my favorite duck.
