Uterine Infection (Pyometra) in an Unspayed Dog

Uterine Infection (Pyometra) in an Unspayed Dog

This dog has pyometra which literally means pus in the uterus...eeeww! Unspayed female dogs can be at risk of uterine infection after they have had a heat and this is a life threatening condition if not treated. The infected content of the uterus can either reach the blood and cause sepsis, or if the uterus bursts, it can cause infection in the abdominal cavity. The treatment is surgical removal of the offending uterus - this is an expensive way to spay your dog!
