Are you still there?

Expert:  Jeffrey Evans replied 1 year ago.

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.
