Pyometra Symptoms in Cats

What is Pyometra?

Is an accumulation of pus within the cat’s uterus. Pyometra usually occurs after Kitty Cat has gone through heat cycle but hasn’t gotten pregnant, bacteria comes in and take advantage of the situation. This leads to a very nasty infection, sometimes fatal.


  • Tired
  • Fever
  • Dehydration
  • Lack or appetite
  • Vomiting

note: A cat with this illness may experience pus leakage from her vagina with some blood if the cat’s cervix is open, Since the pus usually finds a way to drain, your cat may not show any signs. X-rays or an ultrasound of the abdominal can be used to determine if your cat has this illness. If your cat’s cervix is closed, the pus will collect and will cause extreme pain, this may lead to her uterus rupturing and unfortunately death.

Prevention & Treatment

The best prevention method is to spay your cat at the age of 4-6 months. Spaying is also the solution for treatment, but only when your cat has become fully stabilized. Make sure to consult fully with your vet to make sure your cat receives the best treatment.
