Pyometra

Pyometra is a serious, life-threatening illness that can affect unspayed dogs and cats. In short, it is when the uterus of an animal becomes infected. Untreated, this can lead to sepsis and death.

Some common symptoms of pyometra are: decreased appetite, increased drinking, increased urination, abdominal distention, and a foul smelling discharge from the vulva. Pyometras are not always open and draining, which can make physical signs even more confusing for veterinarians and pet owners. Pyometra is a possible diagnosis for any unspayed dog or cat that is not feeling well.

The treatment of choice is surgery. It is the same surgical technique as a spay, but much more complicated due to the size and state of the uterus. The patient undergoing surgery is suffering from a life-threatening infection, and therefore needs more care like extra fluids, pain medication, and antibiotics. Because of these factors, owners are often surprised at prices for pyometra surgery, which can run into thousands of dollars.

If your pet has been diagnosed by your private practitioner with a pyometra (usually by physical exam, bloodwork, and possibly xray or ultrasound), your pet needs emergency surgery. We accept patients for pyometra surgery on a case by case basis and can provide estimates for you.
