This is Normal

During a vaccine clinic this past weekend, a volunteer for No Kill Lehigh Valley asked me to send her the pictures of the cat pyometra and a normal uterus. 

I wanted to share those pictures with you so you could also see the massive difference between normal and infected uteri.    The surgical instruments in both pictures are the same. They are from a small spay pack. That should help give you perspective too! 

A reminder of what the infected uterus looks like:

Please have your cat (or dog) spayed when your vet recommends it. Generally for cats 6 months is fine.  If you adopt an older cat and she's not spayed, it's not "too late." Age is not a disease but a pyometra is and a potentially fatal one at that.
