    Probably time for a cloacal exam to check for obstructions, lumps, fluid, swellings, eggs, etc. Get a glove, some KJ Jelly and very gently do an exam.

    It sounds like you are doing a very good job taking care of her. Hopefully she will start to heal. Is the prolapsed tissue still outside the vent? Try to push it back in if you can.

    Just stick the whole pill in her mouth and massage it down into her crop. If you think the pill is too big, just cut it in half and give 1/2 at a time.
