Dr. Bill Reynolds states: If the prolapse is uterine, you must have the sheep’s head down in order to put the uterus back in the sheep. If the uterus has swelled, you can put sugar on it to reduce the swelling. It is not always possible to put the uterus back in the sheep.
Leslie Sinn, DVM - Sheep Module states: Uterine prolapse occurs within hours of birth while cervical and vaginal prolapse occurs in the last trimester of pregnancy.  The etiology is not clear.  Low calcium levels, exposure to estrogens, obesity and a genetic predisposition have all been implicated.   Success with uterine prolapse depends on prompt and anatomically correct replacement of the uterus.  The prognosis is good for animals with uterine prolapse and there is little chance of reoccurrence.
