Pyometra - dog health experiences
Pyometra dog experience
Dog Owner: Nikki
I had a little 3 lb. Yorkie that came from the shelter and she was so tiny that, back in those days, the anaesthesia was not as safe as it is now so I chose not to have her spayed. She was never out of the yard and she was far too small to breed, so I felt safe in the fact that she didn't need the spaying. When she was an old girl, 14 yrs of age she got sick and was literally squirting blood from her vagina. I took her to the vet and no one believed me that she was actually, off and on, pouring/squirting blood because she didn't do it in front of them. So, when I ended up having to take her to the Emergency Vet that night, and I told them what was happening, they didn't say anything and so I thought they knew what I was saying. Then, right there on the exam table, she started the blood squirting out of her and the stupid vet said, "gee, you're right, she IS squirting blood." I was stunned. I thought I'd made myself clear. As it ended up, by the time I got someone to believe me she was too far gone to help her. I had to have her euthanized.
I just wish to warn anyone who has this happen, please make sure you're understood. Get help for your little one if you have to go to whatever lengths to do it. I wish I'd known sooner that they hadn't believed me. I knew nothing about Pyometra and had never even heard the word before. It is a smart idea to have your female spayed and avoid, at least, Pyometra. I still miss my little one and wish so much that I could have helped her.
