Greg Maxwell (the Complete Chondro) says to place the snake in a shallow tub of water. Just enough water to keep the prolapsed area wet. Make a thick paste of powdered sugar and water and apply to the paste directly to the swollen tissue using an eyedropper or syringe (without needle). The paste draws the moisture out of the prolapsed tissue. Repeat this until swelling goes down.
Truthfully, I would get the animal to a vet if this simple sugar treatment does not work. My heart goes out to your dog.
