Why Did My Dog Get an Infection in Her Uterus (pyometra) after Being in Heat (estrus)?

Pyometra is an infection of the uterus in dogs and cats causing a variety of clinical and pathological signs related to genital and systemic disease. 

The uterus is generally filled with pus.  Although the disease has been recognized for decades, the true pathogenesis has still not been completely understood.  It is generally recognized that progesterone and estrogen and their receptors have a role in the development of pyometra; however, the infection is triggered by bacterial involvement.  The cyclical hormonal influences of the female dog allow the uterus to go through changes that will be acceptable for fertilization of an embryo.  The changes that the uterus undergoes are typical for each dog.  If bacteria are introduced into the uterus at a certain time during the cycle, hormonal regulation of the uterus allows the infection to start and become fulminate.

NB: Ovariohysterectomy (spaying) surgery is the treatment of choice for these patients and can be life-saving.  Surgery however, may not be desirable, e.g. in a valuable breeding bitch.  There are other conventional options, and I have succesfully treated some pyometra patients strictly with homeopathy (and close monitoring).–Dr. Jeff

I'm sending my prayers and best wishes to everyone throughout the world that has been affected by this historic pandemic. My hope is for a better balance of the world and greater empowerment for all as soon as possible. Here are 4 actions that can be used today to improve immune resistance to any virus or bacteria:

1. Go on a "sniff walk” with your pet and breathe fresh air deeply for at least 30 minutes/day.

2. Eat darkly colored fresh vegetables and fruit such as wild blueberries and kale.

3. Do at least 50 HA! breaths just say ha loudly) daily. These forceful expulsions of air help maintain good lung function and can help you detect respiratory problems early. Laughter, coughing and Kapalabhati breathing (from yoga) are three other easy ways to do this.

4. Experience positive emotions, like the sense of awe, when we witness the renewal of nature. Stay safe, Vital and healthy”
