Gleet

I have a wee banty that I am trying not to cull with long term gleet (my diagnosis).

I have tried everything, yogurt, cider vinegar, the works.

She tends to push her insides out (just a little) as she seems to be constantly trying to push it out.

It always goes back in without help.

Is there anything else I can try?

If it is vent gleet it will have a very strong smell, with a discharge. Be very carefull to wash your hands as it can transfer to humans.

I wear surgical gloves most of the time I work with birds Desy.

But now that you mention it - there is very little smell at all.

Its not a prolapse, if the sacks goes back in itself.
Is she eating and drinking ok? She she also still ed in face and bodily fit?

She's active, healthy looking. Eats and drinks well.

It's a mystery to me.
