Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have beena Vet tech for 35+ years and have worked with Reptiles for over 40 years.

I can assist you with the prolapse, but the Dragon will need to be seen by a Herp Vet.

I can lcoate herp Vets with a State or Country.

To treat the prolapse, please clean with some saling and then take a paper towel or guaze pad and place some sugar on it and then wet with cool water. Apply the sugar patch on the area and hold in place as long as possible. this will shrink the tissues and in some cases the Prolape will retratc. When you take off the patch, clean with saline and the apply some personal lubricant to keep the area moist.

The prolapse will have to be put back in and tacked in place.

Make sure you have the Dragon on paper twoel until you can get into the Vet tomorrow.

Please hit reply fr a Herp Vet list and for questions on the instructions.
