Abstract:
Cystic endometrial hyperplasia-pyometra complex (CEH-PC) is one of the multifactorial and common uteropathies of female dogs having signs like inappetence, depression, polydipsia, polyuria, vomiting and abdominal distension with or without vaginal discharge. Diagnosis of CEH-PC may pose challenges to clinician in many ways as sometimes the presenting signs are vague and nonspecific. If, it remains undiagnosed, it may lead to life threatening consequences. Ultrasound is an important and accurate diagnostic tool for the diagnosis of CEH-PC, having numerous benefits like non-invasive in nature, safety of the patient and operator and spontaneous availability of the information regarding disease process. In the present study, six female dogs aged between 4-6 years with CEH-PC were prospectively studied. These cases were diagnosed by using B-mode transabdominal uterine ultrasonography. Further, ultrasonographic and macroscopic studies were done. These cases were managed surgically by ovariohysterectomy (OH). This paper elaborates ultrasonographic and macroscopic findings and surgical management of CEH-PC.
