A study was undertaken on 12 pyometric bitches referred to Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex (SKUAST-J) to study incidence of the disease and its signalment on the basis of history taken followed by thorough clinical examinations. Bitches suffering with pyometra were mainly of Labrador breed and belong to age group of 5-12 years. The common clinical signs reported were vulvar discharge, depressed general condition, inappetence, polydipsia, polyuria, vomition and dehydration. Diagnosis of pyometra was best made with the aid of ultrasonography. Ultrasound images were clear in 91.66% cases as compared to abdominal palpation, which revealed enlarged uterus in 16.66% cases only.
