Pyometra In A Cat – A Life Threatening Infection of the Uterus (Warning – Graphic surgery images)

Miss Snips is a shy, petite (8lb / 3.6kg) mature female stray recently adopted into a new home. When Miss Snips wasn’t feeling well, her new owner brought her in on emergency where it was discovered she was suffering from pyometra – a life threatening infection in the uterus. Miss Snips underwent surgery to remove her uterus and ovaries – which weighed a whopping 900 gm (think two pounds of butter!). 

Pyometra is a relatively common occurrence in unspayed dogs and cats – one of the main reasons we recommend spaying all female pets!

Thank goodness Miss Snips was rescued when she was by her new owner!

We wish her a speedy recovery.
