    I fixed my gooses collapse but its still pretty swollen &feels like one good push could send it out again? Ill be putting preparation H on it &possibly honey. Any other recommendations?

    It may come back out you'll have to keep an eye on her you want to make sure to keep it clean and moist Prep H or Honey may help but I would keep her on towels inside till she hasn't had it come out for an entire day but geese only lay every other day so next time she goes to laying it may happen again. A vet would probably put a stitch or 2 to hold it in place till healed. Was there an egg in it ?

    No egg but a rock hard ball of poop, poor thing. So far so good, she' inside with only water. I have prep H & honey on hand but I'm going to leave it alone for now until it happens again.
