1140. Pyometra in a Miniature Schnauzer

Thursday, March 19, 2015

The 6-year-old Miniature Schnauzer just could not stand up during the last 2 days before pyometra surgery.
"He could stand up when I carried him," the owner came on the 2nd day. The dog was recumbent and not active.
Blood test showed blood bacterial infection

Two days of IV drips and antibiotics. No immediate operation as survival rate will be very low. Owners expect miracles.

On Mar 18, 2015, he was operated by Dr Daniel. Thick dark brown pus (video).
Today, Mar 19, 2015, 11.15am, he was back to normal self (sitting up) see video and should have a good chance of survival. (Video).
