Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the prognosis, the risk status and the death reasons in dead and recovered bitches with pyometra after the operative approach by comparing serum biochemical, and haematological parameters, as well as bacteriological and clinical findings. Bitches with pyometra (n=30) were ovariohysterectomized. Eight bitches that died after the ovariohysterectomy formed Group 1 and the rest, which recovered, was Group 2. In addition, 10 healthy bitches were used as the reference for haematological and biochemical parameters.
