How Much Does Pyometra Surgery Cost?

Pyometra is a potentially life-threatening condition that affects the uterus of an unspayed cat or dog.  The uterus becomes filled with pus and will continue to spread, leading to something known as sepsis.  Underlying conditions often point to urinary tract infections and/or poor hygiene.

Was it worth it?  

  1. Laura (Lawrenceville,  New Jersey) paid $1000 and said:

    Do not call Animal Alliance unless you are into being verbally abused. My vet diagnosed my dog with an open pyometra, prescribed antibiotics and referred me to Animal Alliance in Lawrenceville, NJ. My vet does not do Pyometra spays. I called on a Thursday and left a message, Called again on friday and left a message. They returned my call on Monday. I was called names. Told that just to teach me a “lesson” they were going to charge me what a private vet would. Then she asked me if my vet was going to charge me $1000.00. I tried to explain to her that my vet does not do these and referred me to them. She then went on to lecture me that this should have been done already as it is an emergency spay. Note, it is an emergency with a closed not an open but should be taken care of in a timely manner. My vet felt the antibiotics would only increase the success of surgery. finally this rude woman told me “no we won’t help your dog”

    Was it worth it? No

  6. Cristine (Miami-Dade,  Florida) paid $600 and said:

    I go to Gilley’s Animal Clinic in homestead, FL. My boston terrier has an open pyometra, her surgery hasn’t been done yet but Dr. Gilley is going to charge $600. This includes blood work, as many overnight observation stays as needed and everything else the needed before, during and after the surgery. He is an amazing vet who has saved the lives of two of my dogs already. I trust him over any other vet, and I love him even more knowing that other vets are charging such insane prices for this same surgery. Wish us luck guys, I hope my dog makes it through this!

    Was it worth it? Yes
