    I arrived home to find one of my ducks looking lethargic and noticed that something is stuck in her vent. I have her in the warm tub right now...Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Just saw ur post. Is ur duck better? Did u "finger" it out? Trying to lighten t/mood. Honestly, did u? Maybe gently use a Q-tip w/a lubricant. Just make sure it is not a body part coming out, like the colon, etc. Could be a pro laps?
    Hope ur duck is better.

    Is it a soft shelled egg?

    Or a prolapse?

    Hi, I noticed u r from Gilroy! Love ur town & "Casa de Fruita" I use to stop there a lot on my way to San Jose to see my Mom & Dad. Can u smell the garlic yet? Probably not! I grewup in Glendale, CA, next to LA & Burbank, too crowded for me, would never go back to LA, only to visit my sister!
    Take care.

    Thank you for your replys! I suspect it's prolapse. I gave her a warm bath and gave her electrolytes. The next day she was better. Today, she seems to be having the problem again. This is very upsetting. I'm going to give her another warm bath and pray it helps her.

    Gently check the inside of her vent for a stuck egg.
