    I have a little brahma gal who has a prolapsed rectum. I have cleaned her up and put her alone in a nice, quiet spot in the house but every time she poops, it comes right back out. Her poop is solid still and I have her on medicated feed along with tetracycline in her water. I tried making a sugar water slurry but that doesn't seem to do much. Maybe it isn't thick enough.

    I did not put her in a dark place yet but perhaps that will help her get sleepy and settle down. Should I remove the food that she has in there and just keep the water? I am going into town tomorrow for preparation H...is there anything I can get for her tonight that I might have home?

    thanks.
