Abstract:
We studied incidence rate of pyometra at T.V.C.C., College of Veterinary Science and Animal Husbandry, Jabalpur for one year from June, 2017 to May, 2018 of female dogs (age of six month or above). The mean incidence rate (IR) for pyometra was about 48 dogs per 289 dogs years at risk (DYAR). Incidence rate (IR) of canine pyometra was recorded as 16.61% out of total gynaecological cases attended at T.V.C.C. during the period. The month wise IR was found highest in the month of February (28.12%), Breed wise IR was recorded highest in Labrador and Pomeranian breeds (29.17% each). Higher incidence of canine pyometra was recorded in nulliparous (58.33%) as compared to parous (41.67%) dogs. The higher incidence of canine pyometra (41.67%) was found in animals of 5 to 10 years (middle aged group) and moderate type pyometra (41.67) was recorded followed by severe type (33.33%) and mild type (27.08%). The present study provides information of incidence and probability of developing pyometra based on age, month and breed. These data may be useful for designing dog breeding programs in high-risk breeds and for future studies.
