I have no experience with this type of thing, but someone around here will. Try doing a search on here for the word 'prolapse' and it will bring up a number of previous discussions to read through. This one may be helpful:

If you must cripple a creature
to keep it, perhaps you should
reconsider its suitability as a pet.

hello i have a male cockatoo that i rescued with a prolaps.he has had surgery and the surgery was a sucess they did what is called a ventplasty,and now that bird is wonderfull and healthy,
first i must say before you diagnose your bird you need to get it to the vet right away and have it checked.and then go from there they do not need to be euthanized for a prolaps the surgerys have come along way and are usually successfull.my bird had his surgery and came home the same day he was on meds for 10 days.
please get your bird to the vet before maore damage accurs.

Hi,

Yes, my Moluccan cockatoo had this for years!! She was not born healthy, she had some other medical problems, but as she got older she also developed a prolapse. I just lost her last week and I'm still in mourning...(she did not pass from the prolapse so don't worry). Over the years I've taken her to the best avian vets in my area and they all did "pexi's" on her. Eventually she blew them out and re-developed the prolapse. I even took her to Avery Bennent in Gainsville, FL reported to be the best of the best. His surgury lasted the longest - 3-4 years. Toward the end, I switched tracks and went to a holistic vet. She's been on herbs and getting vitamin B shots. Believe it or not, she was responding great. However she did pass last week and I think with all her ailments, she just finally got weak. She was only 12 which is pretty young for a Moluccan.

My final commments are - they can live a long time with a prolapse, and surguries usually work (I'm sure I had the exeception...all the vets where baffeled as to why she kept blowing it out). It looks bad to see it, but it is not the end. Your bird will definetely need surgery though and keep your eye on it. Thanks, Renee

So sorry for the loss of your Moluccan; so young. Sounds like you made her twelve years very happy and as healthy as you could. My M2 is only a year and already I can't imagine life without her.
Take care.
