Sitemap Based on the symptoms we have said, the doctor presumed that she might have pyometra,  a disease that usually occurs on dogs 6 years and older that has never been neutered.  When we brought her, no laboratory or xray was needed to confirm the truth that she was indeed suffering from this sickness.  My heart shuttered when I have heard about it and the fact was all showing that there is a small chance for her to recover if she would not undergone an operation considering the circumstances that she is already old and there’s a 50 /50 chances that she can able to survive the operation.
