Pyrometria

My Mare was recently diagnosed with Pyrometria.  It is my understanding that this means that she has a small cervix that is unable to naturally discharge toxins.  THe Vet offered hysterectomy as a possible option.  Does anyone know of a more cost effective way to combat this disease?  Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I'm so sorry. Pyrometria is infection of the uterus. It is painful and very dangerous. The only way to effectively treat this is by complete hysterectomy (and, while they're at it, they should also remove the ovaries). This is one of the complications that is avoidable through early spaying.

Pyometra is not just a simple infection but an accumulation of pus in the uterus. It occurs most frequently in aged dogs, eight to 14 years of age or older.

The infection develops as a result of repeated, cyclical hormonal stimulation of the uterus. Every time the female dog goes into heat, the glands in the uterus become engorged to prepare for potential pregnancy, in response to the hormone progesterone. The glands and their contents provide an ideal growth medium for bacteria.

The source of bacteria is usually an ascending infection, from the outside of the body, up the vagina to the uterus. Occasionally they arrive at the uterus via the bloodstream.

If the mare has for example poor reproductive conformation and/or delayed uterine clearance issues and/or compromised immune response the problem could reoccur. . .
