    Hi I'm a new member and I'm after some advice if possible please. I have a 4 year old female cane Corso who is currently in season, bleeding more than she has previous, not eating, not her normal hyperself and her 3rd eye lids are now showing. Could she possible have an infection and needs a trip to the vets as I went to the local vets this afternoon as was worried about her eyes and they said she could possibly been unwell due to being in season

    This sounds like a vet emergency to me - I would take her to an out-of-hours vet. It sounds like a uterine infection - pyometra.
    Do you think she's deteriorated in herself since she saw the vet this afternoon ? She sounds quite sick .

    She should see a vet again .
    Did the vet you saw today take her temperature?

    This doesn't sound normal to me.

    The heavier blood loss may not actually be that, it may be that she is not keeping herself so clean if she is unwell.

    The loss of appetite and third eyelid becoming present isn't normal.

    I too suggest that you seek an opinion from another Vet and urgently.

    Hi Natasha, as has been previously mentioned, I would have her back at vet asap to rule out pyometra. Vet must scan her pronto. Good luck and keep us posted please

    Pyometra during the season would be unusual. It usually occurs a few weeks after the season. I'd still go th the vet though. Rule of thumb - if you have to ask if you should go to the vet, the answer is yes.

    My old girl became unwell during her last season , she had an urgent spay and a diagnosis of endometritis.
