Pyometra in 11 month old GSD puppy

Hi everyone. Sorry I haven't been too active.
Weve recently had a prolonged season with our lovely Bailey who is just turning 11 months in a few weeks.
We had to rush her in to the vets surgery due to being called in as she started to smell.
It turned out she had early Pyometra, but the vet said he had seen nothing like it in all his years of surgery. They also had to remove everything due to everything crumbling away. Her wound is really bad and she's feeling so sorry for herself.

I have a couple of questions.
1. Should I go back to the breeder and ask questions as we paid top money for her champion blood line.
2. Because the vet has taken everything out. Can we be relieved and think that nothing else should be wrong in that department now, or is there still risks?
Thanks in advance.

.In regards to the breeder you should talk to her and let her know what happened if she had has had dogs with pyo. One of the causes of pyo is believed to be linked to bacteria. Pyo is not uncommon in females that are not being bred. It often happens in older females but it can happen in young females. Im glad she is doing well and sounds like the worst is over. I would not think you will have further complications but this you need to talk about that with your vet. Wishing your beautiful girl a speedy recovery.

Pyometra has nothing to do with genetics. You could notify your breeder but basically you have a living, breathing, creature and there are risks with that.

If you have any questions, you should definitely contact your vet.

I think pyo has a genetic component because some breeds tend to be more prone to it? More info here: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/...2001.tb01587.x

I'd let the breeder know, but in this case, it seems that maybe there was a congenital abnormality that was random (likely not genetic). Dogs aren't machines, and breeders aren't able to prevent or predict everything.

It is possible. I have heard genetics possible but not proven nor could it be used against a breeder. It could be a reason or just a congenital defect as Saco mentioned or non defect just timing and introduction to certain bacteria, structure or ph levels trouble regulating that may make infections more susceptible, Immune system not may function at full capacity. I would think the breeder would want to know -if she has had many young females with pyo in the past or if she starts to see this could be a link as to a possible why and good information for the breeder or information that is not relevant at all but still good for them to know .
