CARE PLAN: PYOMETRA SURGERY
AKA: UTERINE INFECTION SURGERY
Pyometra is the medical term for an infection where the uterus becomes distended with bacteria and pus. Untreated this condition can lead to death either through the absorption of toxins from the bacteria and pus into the blood stream (sepsis) or the rupture of the fragile uterine tissues and release of the pus into the abdomen - conceptually similar to a ruptured appendix. This condition is considered a surgical emergency and should be addressed as soon as possible.
Our veterinary practice surgical protocols for pyometra include our hospital standards of physical examination, blood profile, IV catheter and IV fluids, pre and post operative pain relief, anesthesia, surgical procedure, a bite not or e-collar, post-operative medical management in the hospital from 1-3 days, pain relief and antibiotics to go home and the post operative follow-up appointment for suture removal.
