HI Everyone. My 12 year old female japanese spitz has pyometra. It breaks our hearts as we had her since I was just in gradeschool. We were advised that she needs to undergo surgery but we are kinda hesitant because we do not know if she can still survive the surgery with her age. My mom does not want to let her undergo the surgery but me and my dad wants to take the risk of giving her the treatment. Please I am begging you to please give me an advice so that I can fully decide. I love my dog so much and I don’t know what to do. Thank you all.
I have a 13 year old mixed breed pomeranian which was diagnosed with open pyometra a few hours ago. The doctor said that surgery is the best option but obviously it carries risk due to her old age. We gave the dog the injection which goes along with the antibiotic course. Do you think we should operate her (given the risks) or else give the antibiotics a go for maybe 2-3 days?
Is panting after a pyometra surgery normal? and how long can it go on, she is 30 hours post op? Thank you
Asking for a friend to try and help get more information: His 8 year old pit bull was seen last night at the emergency vet and the diagnosis is pyometra. She has already lost weight from not eating but still drinking plenty of water. Emergency vet is quoting close to $2,000 for surgery which my friend can’t handle right now. Are there any resources out there besides care credit? How long does he have to decide if it will be surgery or euthanasia? Thanks in advance!
I found a female stray schnauzer. Had fleas and ticks but otherwise looked healthy very energetic sweet personality. Brought her to our regular vet but vet who saw her we never dealt with. He examined her heard a slight heart murmur and 365 later with meds for fleas and antibioitcs for skin and ears. Four days later she stressing out to breathe. Back to vet. 400 later sent home with meds for congestive heart failure. Does great for 2 days. Then starts shaking and very lethargic. Back in. Told she has open pyrometra and surgery is very risky and antibiotcs work against heart meds. They felt most humane thi ng is to eauthanize. So we left w a dead dog another 400 bill and a broken heart. Does ANY of this sound right. How can 2 major conditions be missed on first visit
I took our 11 year old lab to the vet today for a drainage coming from her vaginal area. She was diagnosed with pyometra open form. Her cbc was ok her ua was positive they put her on clavamox and she is scheduled to be spayed on Thursday. Hoping the antibiotics clear up the infection before surgery. Her appetite is good she is excessively thirsty but seems fine. If not for the drainage I wouldn’t have known she was sick. What is your opinion on being spayed at 11 years old. She has know other illnesses and her joints are fine. The cost has me worried her visit today was 350 not sure for the surgery bill. Thank you
My Bengal cat was diagnosed with pyrometra and I was unable to afford the surgery 1000-1400 I took her home and treated her with antibiotics and now she is no longer sick. Is the infection just cleared up and she still has the desease or will it come back when she goes into heat? Will she be able to have kittens again?
Yesterday my 9 year old pit bull had the pyometra surgery. She seemed okay when I picked her up but once I got her home she threw up bile. I was hoping it was a one time thing but she has now thrown up 5 times. I tried to to give her the medicine with a little boiled chicken & rice. Unfortunately that didn’t work bc she just threw it right back up. I’m at a loss right now. 🙁
My dog was diagnosed with pyometra last week. The vet put her on antibiotics for 20 days. I know this is very serious condition. Is it common for her to still be bleeding?
My Yorkie was just diagnosed with pyometra. I had never heard of this before. Emergency vet last night, we go to our vet today for blood work and antibiotics. They say they will probably spay her next week. So if they wait will the antibiotics take her infection away? And if antibiotics work for the infection will she have a normal spay? I’ve been reading all kinds of stuff online since last night and this is horrible!
