Have you heard the term pyomtra? Pyometra is a pus-filled uterus found in intact (unspayed) adult female cats and dogs. When animals are not fixed and allowed to go through heat cycles, they have hormonal changes and their cervix opens to allow for pregnancy. When that happens, bacteria can enter their uterus and infection is formed. Treatment is a costly emergency spay and aggressive antibiotics or the animal can lose it’s life. If the uterus ruptures, the animal is at a very high risk of death. It’s always best and less expensive to spay your dog or cat by 5 months to prevent this and mammary cancer from ever happening.
