    Pyometra

    Anyone have a female dog go through this? My oldest we left whole thinking we would breed her, well 12 years later she got sick Saturday night and called the vet Sunday. Vet suspected pyometra and recommended spaying and that is what happened today. I know the infection can kill so I hope I acted fast enough. They called about 3pm and said she was doing good. I know she is older but I just can't part with her yet. The also found two cysts on one of her ovaries which would have explained her erratic and never ending heat cycles.

    Never heard of that myself, but I have a dog at the vet right now. Might have to have her mammaries removed. She has stones in her kidneys and will require a special diet for the rest of her life. Wonderful dog though...

    Patrick, I hope she makes a quick recovery. Pets are a special part of the family.

    It is actually fairly common in female dogs that are left intact. And the hormones the body is subjected to by having the ovaries can oftentimes lead to breast cancer in dogs.

    I am glad that she made it through the surgery. Once the source of the infection is removed, they usually bounce back pretty quickly with proper care. She is a cute dog!

    Tough on all of us when our "fur kids" do not feel well. They really are a big part of the family! Hope all goes well with both of y'all's pups.

    Thanks for the kind regards. You are spot on with the exact comments my vet stated in regards to being common and recovering once the toxic mess is removed.

    I even got her John Deere collar out to help her recovery.

    Sorry to hear about your little one. Our cat was just at the vet a week ago to have bladder stones removed. They found 5 stones and some of the larger ones were as large as 0.8cm. I felt so bad after he came home, not only could he not tell me how he was feeling but he had to wear the cone of shame.

    It depends upon how you define common when one says that it is a common condition. However pyometra is certainly not uncommon either.
    It occurs in female dogs that have never whelped somewhat more frequently than those that have whelped but it can occur in either or both situations. As a female dog ages the likelihood does increase somewhat as well. We had a three year old develop it and had her spayed as a result so it can and does occur in the younger female dog as well.
    There are treatments that can be done that can "temporarily" cure the infection but the female dog has to be bred on the next cycle or the likelihood of re-occurrence is really high. Even then, after whelping the next heat cycle post pregnancy will most likely see a re-occurrence. These treatments are not very much "fun" either for the owners or the female dog in question. Some vets will say that there is no treatment other than spaying but the reproductive specialists in the vet world can and do succeed in treating it. It is as I said before, very hard on the animal.

    If caught and dealt with early enough there is a good prognosis for recovery (post spay). If the cervix is closed and discharge is prevented from being discovered prognosis is not as good.

    Wow
    I had to go back and replace the common term for female dog with the term "female dog" in my post. The system did not like the term at all, and put ***** in the place of the common term. As my wife says do not call anyone a "common term for female dog" as that is an insult to my dogs. I guess dog folks see the world differently than others.

    That's too bad pcabe5. I do however agree with Farmgirl, we have always spayed, that being one of the reasons.
    I truly hope everything works out for you. The same goes for you diesel.
