Abstract :

The present study was conducted to evaluate the changes in physiological and Hematobiochemical changes in open and closed pyometra. Pyometra affected dogs were broadly divided into open and closed pyometra depending on the patency of cervix. clinically healthy dogs served as control. Physiological parameters did not show any significant difference. Normocytic normochromic anemia was evident in both pyometra affected groups when compared to control dogs. TLC and neutrophil count was significantly higher in pyometra affected group. Lymphopenia and eosinopenia was evident in open and closed pyometra. A slight monocytosis was observed in closed pyometra. Band neutrophil was significantly higher in affected groups when compared to control dogs. Hepatic enzymes ALT did not show any significant changes, while AST was significantly increased in closed pyometra. Hyperglobulinemia with hypoalbuminemia with unaltered total protein concentration was consistent with open and closed pyometra. The creatinine concentrations were significantly higher in open and closed pyometra when compared to healthy control dogs. Keywords: pyometra, open, closed, hematobiochemical, anemia, creatinine
