Abstract


Canine pyometra is a pathological condition of endometrium which results in accumulation of purulent semisolid substance in uterus. Canine pyometra is a sequlae of cystic endometrial hyperplacia (CEH) which results from hormonal imbalance. Despite of enormous veterinary medical research and development, still its main aspect of etio-pathology is not fully known. Canine pyometra is mostly associated with other similar uterine pathological conditions, i.e., hydrometra, mucometra and chronic endomertitis.
