Vent Prolapse in Birds

Treatment

 

Successful treatment depends on timely detection. Treatment is done via surgery and behavior modification therapy.

 

Owners are advised to break the close bond for the good health of the bird and not stroke the bird on the back, feed it by hand, or cuddle the bird close to the body.

 

Prevention

 

To prevent the cloacal prolapse from occurring again, the bird has to stop thinking of the owner as its parent or mate.
