Based on the results of systematic clinical examination and the results obtained that the temperature of the dog is 38.1 ℃ (normal), pulsus frequency 120x/minute and the frequency of breathing 40x/ minute. At the time of inspection and palpation of the large abdomen, the nipple comes out. In a complete blood test conducted at Anom Animal Clinic showing the results of Leucosytosis (an increase in white blood cells) which indicates the incidence of bacterial infection, the dog is diagnosed with pyometra after being supported also by X-ray examination results showing radiopaque on the abdomen and ultrasound results showing the uterus anechoic. Dogs treated by surgery to remove the ovary and uterus (ovaryohysterectomy) and continued administration of antibiotics and analgesics.
