In the present study attempt was made to assess the haemato-biochemical changes in normal healthy (n=9) and pyometra (n=15) dogs belongs to six different breeds. The presumptive clinical diagnosis of pyometra was made based on clinical history, signs and ultrasonographic examination. The diagnosis was further confirmed by gross examination of pus-filled uterus after the ovariohysterectomy. The study revealed alterations in the total erythrocyte count, haemoglobin and packed cell volume with normocytic and normochromic anaemia in pyometra cases. The leucogram revealed leucocytosis, predominant absolute neutrophilia, lymphopenia. No significant changes were noticed in serum creatinine and alanine aminotransferase levels.
