YouTube - If your snake has a prolapse, it is important to immediately seek veterinary assistance. This is a life threatening condition.

In this video, Snake Discovery shows us what experienced reptile keepers, veterinarians, and vet technicians can do to treat a prolapse. If treatment is attempted at home (such as while the veterinarian’s office is closed), it is important to seek veterinary care as soon as possible. Further treatment beyond what is shown in this video may be necessary.
