My baby girl Lily Coe ( a 4 year old pug) passed away on Feb 02,2010. Lily had what we thought was milk coming from her nipples, we took her to ourvet to find she had a DEADLY infection....Pyometria. At the time I didn't have money for the surgery..so the next week I took her back.That morning she was her usual playful loving self. I called to see if her surgery was done at 1:36 that afternoon.........When the dr told me "there was a problem, Lily didn't make it" I was and still an devastated . When the dr put Lily under anesthesia she immediately went into cardiac arrest, He did every thing he could. Even a shot of eppy directly into her heart..my Lily was gone. I want to save everyone I can from going through what I am. Please spay your pet,even women can get pyometria "what to do"
Know that it very commonly occurs in older canines which are not spayed and not used for breeding. Be aware of the signs of pyometeria, the most commonly is thick, orange-ish putrid 'purulent' fluid coming out of the vaginal opening, or smelled there. Sometimes, but not always, the dog is depressed and the belly distended. The temperature (obtained by sticking a thermometer in the anal cavity) is often over 102.5 degrees F, but this is only a secondary finding.
Get to a veterinarian immediately. What needs to be done is to give the dog antibiotics and prepare for an 'emergency' spay in which the infected and often fluid filled uterus is removed. Such is more difficult than a normal spay because the infected uterus is 'bloated' with bacteria-infested fluid which can leak into the abdomen and cause more problems with other organs. The uterus in pyometria is very fragile and can burst on its own if not removed carefully and effectively.
Go through with the surgery. There's no other way to treat it. Flushing the uterus with antibiotic and iodine has limited use and much risk.
