Pyometra occurs when the uterus has been primed by the estrogen release in estrus followed by the release of progesterone. At a meeting that I went to, the repro vet said it was also more common in a uterus with endometrial hyperplasia and/or uterine cysts. Ironically, I heard of a golden breeder in this area that has brought a number of bitches into a local animal hospital with pyometra(a vet tech told me and probably shouldn't have), so it got me to thinking if there was some hereditary link. Recently we spayed a ten month old golden with a pyometra. She had the most unusual uterine pathology that I have seen in a young dog. So,we sent it in for histopathology as a professional interest, sure enough, it was pyometra with endometrial hyperplasia and (infected) endometritis. In 26.5 years as a vet, I have never seen Pyo in a bitch that young. And yes, after a bitch has a Pyo, you need to breed,on the next heat. The conditions that caused the Pyo in the first place are still present with each subsequent heat. I am going to a Continuing Education in January, given by Dr. Hutchinson, the repro guru, and I will see what he has to say about that and hydrops.
I would be interested in what you find out I ahve read alot by Hutch... I had a friend years ago whose young bitch pyo'd after her first heat cycle... she was crushed as this was a lovely show prospect and was her first show bitch...

as far as it being genetic... I have wondered about this... Meghan pyo'd (open) at 6 and was spayed... my Shalva (her daughter) also pyo'd at the same age (closed, we almost lost her).... Pyo's scare me to death I would love to see data on this do many daughters pyo at the same age as their mothers... it would be interesting to see

When I have a bitch that Pyo's I just accept that mother nature is telling me motherhood is not in the cards for the bitch, and she's spayed.

I am exactly the same... my girl is more important to me as a beloved pet ... I have never treated a pyo... we just spay and move on....
