Prolapse Tube

Post by AZ-Pigs » Tue Jul 07, 2020 12:53 am

We placed a rectal prolapse tube a week ago. The tissue has died but I think the tube has been pushed in a bit and I can’t see it or the castration band. The tissue just under the anus is still soft. The gilt is still pooping fine. How much longer should I wait for it to fall off? Should I pull on it? What can I Or should I do?

If it does not fall off on its own I would say you may need to consult your vet.
