On clinical examination cat had the rectal temperature of 100.9 F and pale mucous membrane. The vulva was dry and clean. On ultrasonography examination of abdomen, multiple anechoic areas found in the uterine lumen. Complete blood count revealed leucocytosis with neutrophilia and eosinophilia. Based on the above mentioned findings, the condition was diagnosed as feline closed pyometra or Cystic endometrial hyperplasia. Cat was stabilized with antibiotics and supportive intravenous medication. Midventral laparotomy was performed under general anaesthesia. Ovario- hysterectomy was performed in a routine manner.
