Default PLEASE HELP! Axolotl having problem laying eggs

I don't know what to do and if this happened last time she laid eggs, but this looks really bad!! She is a year and a half and this is her second time laying eggs (first time was about 1.5 months ago). What is that protruding from her???

That certainly doesn't look normal. Is there a vet in your area that knows how to care for amphibians? If so, you may want to give them a call. Hopefully she'll be alright.

I think you're right I looked it up and it looks like what she has. I can take her tomorrow. I don't think there is anywhere I can take her now...

Hi all, just as an update: it appears almost all of it is back in her body now!!! YAY!!!! Maybe she will be ok. Does anyone know if I should treat her with antibiotics?

No antibiotics, just keep a close eye on her as it may happen again. If it does take her straight to a vet, use your time now to find one that can do surgeries on axies. I think the general thing is to put in a stitch to stop anything falling out again? sometimes prolapses do go back on their own, I'm glad to hear she's okay!!
