Pyometra is accumulation of purulent material within the uterus, which manifests in both local and systemic symptoms, and demands costly surgical or medical intervention (Hagman et al. 2011). Pyometra is typically a post-oestral syndrome in adult bitches associated with a variety of clinical and pathological manifestations of genital and multisystemic disease (Chaffaux and Thibier 1978). Parity and age are significant risk factors in the development of pyometra (Niskanen and Thrusfield 1998). This paper communicates with successful management of a critical case of closed cervix pyometra in a German shepherd bitch.
