Could we see photos? We can usually help more when we can see what's happening...

Euthanasia is always a last resort... Don't do it if you don't have to. Only do it if they'll either be compromised completely or die anyway

Ah I see it now... I don't know what it could be.

@Colin_T might know... Give him a bit to reply.
Maybe @Byron can shed some light?

It looks to me like a hernia allowing the intestine to protrude. A prolapse. There is no treatment, and it usually (not always I have heard, not seen) ends badly.
