Canine Pyometra

Posted by Carlos Aguiar on Tuesday, January 5, 2016

Sissy is a 2yr female american bulldog who presented with profuse bloody vaginal discharge. She had no appetite and drank excessive amounts of water. On examination we found that she had pyometra (pus filled uterus), this condition requires immediate surgery to remove the uterus and ovaries. 

We took blood for a complete blood count and chemistry profile. We found Sissy to be positive for heartworm and have a severe infection. Heartworm makes the pyometra surgery more risky, both of these conditions are life threatening. We were able to operate Sissy and she recovered greatl. One month later we started the heartworm treatment that takes 4 months to complete. 

Both these conditions are preventable with monthly deworming and spaying your pet.
