Optimal treatment for your pet requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow-up can be critical, especially if your pet does not rapidly improve.

  • Administer all prescribed medications as directed. Alert your veterinarian if you are experiencing problems treating your pet.

  • Be familiar with your pet's appetite, attitude and activity level. It can be very helpful if you notice subtle changes in your pet's behavior, eating, drinking or urination habits. The more you are aware of what is "normal" for your pet, the quicker you will be able to pick up on something going wrong. As with most diseases, early detection and intervention is best.

  • Be familiar with your pet's body. If you notice any vaginal discharge or other signs associated with pyometra, contact your veterinarian.

  • If you have no plans to breed your pet, have her spayed as early as your veterinarian recommends.
