Infection of the womb or uterus is a life-threatening condition which requires emergency surgery to remove the uterus and ovaries.
It occurs in non-neutered females usually 4 – 8 weeks after their season.
Signs of Pyometra may include increased thirst and vomiting. There may also be blood and pus discharge from the vulva but this not always the case as the cervix can be closed so the infection builds up inside.
Neutering is recommended to prevent the possibility of pyometra occurring.
