Abstract

Pyometra, is a uterine disorder mediated by the hormone progesterone, in jaguars, there are few case reports and none in an animal with acquired heart disease. The pyometra is classified as open and closed cervix, according to the presence or absence of vulvar discharge (pyometra can lead to renal, digestive and cardiac complications, with uremic syndrome being the major cause of death, even more in a cardiopath. During a visit to evaluate the state of health of jaguars (Panthera onca) in a wildlife conservation center in south eastern of Mexico, cardiac alterations and the presence of open cervix pyometra were diagnosed, which later progressed to closed cervix pyometra, in this work, we detail the methodology used for its diagnosis and its successful treatment of pyometra. The information provided in this case is original because it is an uncommon clinical case, diagnosed and treated by the authors; novel because it is a species at risk of extinction and a condition not reported in jaguars as well as topical since we used efficient and safe valuations and diagnostic methods, the manuscript represents new information that has not been previously submitted or published elsewhere.
