Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi! This is Dr. Evans, do you have some time to chat now?
Hi! How are you tonight?
Are you still there?
When your vet did the surgery, she had a uterus full of infection. Since there is a lot of blood, we worry about infection in the blood. Your veterinary likely means that after surgery, your dog still has a fever which means antibiotics are needed for a little while.
