Pyometra in a German Shepherd Dog: A Clinical Case Report

D. Biswas, S. Das, B.C. Das and A.K.M. Saifuddin

Abstract

A 9-year-old virgin German shepherd was admitted with continuous sanguinopurulent vaginal discharge, distended abdomen, and cachexia. The dog was clinically diagnosed with pyometra and successfully cured by ovario-hysterectomy. The results of histo-pathological examination showed that the endometrial glands were larger than normal and that part of the endometrial wall had sloughed off and become infiltrated with mostly neutrophils. This is the first case report of endometritis and cystic endometrial hyperplasia in a virgin German shepherd in Bangladesh.
