Pyometra Management

We can provide both surgical and medical management of bitches suffering from pyometra (uterine infections). The medical management of pyometra is reserved only for those bitches that are not overtly ill.  The process of medically managing a pyometra in the bitch involves more than simply treating her with antibiotics.  We usilize drugs to drop the bitches progesterone levels and can combine therapies to dilate the cervix and allow evacuation of the uterine contents.  Bitches requiring extensive medical management (fluid support, IV antibiotics, hospitalization) need to be spayed. Medical management may not be successful (inability to clear the uterus of infected material or rupture of the uterus) and will necessitate spaying.   We would assess your bitch with examination, blood work and ultrasound to best determine how to safely address this issue.
