Problems with sow: no strength, no eating

Our sow cannot stand. Its back legs have no strength. It doesn't eat unless fed through a syringe. It's 1 week now since it became like paralyzed. It is 3 months and 15 days pregnant now. We have injected her antibiotics and vitamins but no effect. What should we do?

Have you changed feed type? Have you tried some straw? Fever? Is she in a crate or free? Try to free her a bit to have a walk

It has prolapse too. 2 prolapses on the viganal part and on the anus. How can we treat that?

Unfortunately no treatment. They can finish lactation but afterwards better to cull them, it would repeat next farrow or before. You can try to interviene surgically to permit survival for a time.
