|Remove the duck from the company of other ducks to avoid them injuring the oviduct.|
|Do not attempt to push the tube back into their body yourself.|
|Keep the oviduct clean and moist until you get to the vet.|
|The duck will require aggressive treatment with warm saline flushes, antibiotics, and replacement of the prolapsed oviduct. If the prolapsed oviduct is too swollen dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) and topical dextrose and/or steroids may be required to decrease the swelling of the organs.|
|If there is an egg present in the oviduct that cannot be removed or if the organ is damaged, surgery may be required.|
