Pyometra, also known as a pyo, is an infection of the uterus (womb). It’s a common condition in female dogs who haven’t been spayed and requires urgent veterinary treatment. Each time a female dog has a season — usually about twice a year — she undergoes all the hormonal changes associated with pregnancy. This is regardless of whether she becomes pregnant or not. The changes in the uterus that occur during each season make infection more likely with age. A very common organism called E. coli, found in your dog’s faeces, usually causes pyometra. Surgery is recommended to remove the infected uterus.
