Like others here on this site, I do know manuka honey works as my dog was going thru coughing, gagging, sneezing and runny nose I was told by a vet she had heart worm or heart disease, so I started giving her kefir, manuka honey and hawthorne berry and everything has disappeared, but like everyone else here I firmly believe now she is going thru pyometra with her leaking, so hers might not be as bad since she was already on the manuka honey and kefir before it all started, so now I am going to use this remedy with kefir, manuka, turmeric and vitamin c. By the way, my dog is Chihuahua and is 13 years old, I have gone to 2 vets and I solved one problem that they could not solve, after spending numerous dollars on an allergy test and meds,
BETTER BUT NOT CURED
Manuka Honey Vitamin C Closed Pyometra became Open
okay.... 10 days ago, my dog weighed 87lbs. She's down to 77, but still alive. Was given $3k quote for emergency surgery for closed pyometra. While the vet left the room for me to decide, I jumped on her computer and started googling.
Declined the surgery and took my dog home. 4 days in, she could barely walk. Was trying antibiotics and manuka honey, but she would not eat anything, so I had to force open her mouth and force it. Thought she was going to die...Now we are ten days in and she is walking again, and has started draining pus. More and more pus is coming out. She is still not eating, but drinking a lot and peeing a lot.
I started with the =10 manuka from Trader Joes and today I went for the +24 Manuka Doctor from Whole Foods. I take a big finger glob and put in a piece of sliced turkey or ham and wrap it up and force her mouth open like I saw on a veterinary website and get the food in her throat and close her mouth and rub her neck.
She doesn't like that, but she's getting better. She is still not eating, but we went for a walk last night, about a mile. That's huge. We are not out of the woods by any means.
My golden retriever had Pyometra and was honestly too weak for surgery. Her body was lifeless. She was on death's door. I gave her manuka honey (16+) 1 tsp. 3X day. It cleared the Pyometra, which was truly a miracle at that point. She was so sick and I was fearful I would never get her to eat, but it was just a matter of listening to her. I made her a smorgasbord of food options but noticed she was begging for my husband's COOKED chicken. Interesting to note, she couldn't tolerate her normal raw foods diet at that point, so I cooked chicken for her, and she ate it. She bounced back and that was well over two years ago, by the way. In the end, I'm not suggesting this will work for anyone else, but she was so sick that I we nothing to lose except for the sweetest little girl in the world. Please check with your vet. Ours was supportive (thank goodness)!!!
By the way, there are TONS of amazing studies on Manuka honey (most conducted outside of the US). Read the research. It's pretty compelling. Also Manuka honey is GREAT for topical infections too! Honestly, I am shocked that no one else appears to have posted about Manuka honey; it's the BOMB. I won't forget the fear of losing her, so my heart goes out to anyone dealing with a similar situation. Blessings to you!!!
I need your help. I have a golden retriever that has had open pyometra for almost three weeks. Initially I took her to the vet emergency and they wanted 3K. No go. They prescribed antibiotics. I'm against them. I've always taken care of this dog naturally and have never give her anything unnatural. She's always eaten organic and for almost two years a whole foods and raw diet. It would go totally against my game plan to do anything other.
For the entire time now she's eaten, drank, pooped and peed fine with good temp. She's been very weak but has been able to walk for the most part. No vomiting or diarrhea. Very good digestion as usual.
Initially she just had small amounts of puss. Now, for the last four days it's been bloody puss. Very dark red and large amounts. When I saw these posts weeks ago, I started her on quality Manuka 3-4 times a day, two vitamin C 500s a day and initially I had given her an anti-inflammatory from the local vet. She doesn't like the turmeric. Yesterday she wasn't hungry for the first time but she still ate some food. Organic sirloin, potatoes and I've been injecting fresh juice into her mouth with bone broth and egg yolk.
I'm just worried about all this blood loss ya know. It drains, then it stops for a while, it drains, then it stops for a while. Sure, it's not just blood. It's puss but it's very dark red so it's quite a bit of blood.
God help my little girl. Thanks for your attention.
So glad I found this page! Our dog came down with closed pyometra last week during her heat. She went down quick. Not our normal Coco. We have never heard her cry or yelp but when she tried getting up 3 different times last week she cried. I stopped at a natural food store after reading this article and purchased some Manuka Doctor +24 and we ordered Vitamin C for dogs. The first 3 days we didn't have anything. The vet hospital was going to charge $3800. We didn't have it and thought we may have to put her down. Coco is 10 years old and a boxer/mastiff mix. It hurt us to see her look at us like, "help me daddy & mommy." We started giving her the mix and she is slowly coming back. Much improvement has been made. She will see the vet next week and hopefully he'll give her antibiotics to help clear this up. As soon as this happens, she will be spayed. If anyone lives near Richmond, VA there is a place that does the surgery for $455.00. They don't believe in charging families all of that money and don't want us to have to choose between bills and an animal. Thank you all for your encouraging stories. Praying for all dogs that are going through this!
I need Teds Help Asap!!!
I think my dog has Pyometra. My female dog has had a few irregular Cycles. For example instead of every 6 months she has had it about every 4 months at least 2-3 times. Her cycle began July1, 2013 while it ususally last about 3 to 4 wks she still has what I believed was her cycle and it is August 26, 2013. Two days ago she started with diarrhea in which I gave her pumpkin for but then I also realized that she is soaking her pad as well. At first I thought she was urinating on herself because there was so much liquid but I noticed faint blood with yellow. I believe it is also pus. She doesn't want to eat or drink and is not active. No fever and she is very uncomfortable. I did an internet search and came up with pyometra. She is not having loose stools Just 1 dropping in the mornings and it's softer than usual but noticed her belly hurts when picked up. I will take her to the vet but I want to know if you have any available information that can help my dog with natural remedies. I am scare to lose my dog to this horrible surgery of removal of her uterus. She is a small breed Maltese and Yorkie and weighs about 11 pounds and measures from neck to tail 12" inches and just turned 7 Yrs old. Please Help I don't want my dog to die. I love her so much and don't know what I would do without her.
My dog had been excessively panting for a day and a half and engaged in nesting behaviors although she is not pregnant. It was 2am in the morning and she was acting restless and panting excessively although it is no longer hot and the summer had just passed. I gave her 1000mg vitamin c in coconut oil and almost immediately it stopped her panting and her temperature went down.
The first sign something was wrong was a couple of weeks ago when my dog wouldn't want to go on long walks. She usually loves her daily walks, but she would walk just a little, then stop, and would want to turn around to go back home. I knew something was wrong then, although she was eating normally. However, she looked a little depressed and I thought it might be the summer heat.
In addition, at the same time, I noticed one of the dogs had a bloody discharge along with the urine- but it cleared up after a day, so I didn't think much about it.
However, when my dog started panting excessively, I knew something was wrong! I feared the worst and thought it could be pyometra. However, it was 2am in the morning so I gave her the 1000mg vitamin c powder in coconut oil. This completely resolved her panting and fever almost immediately.
I rang my vet in the morning and he thinks she is fine now that her condition has stabilized. He thinks dogs may pant excessively when they are in heat. I noted that her last heat was 6 months ago. However, intuitively, I knew it was something more than that because she was also acting very clingy and will want to be around me all the time, and she only does that when she is sick.
Anyhow, the one dose treatment of 1000mg vitamin c completely resolved her panting and fever and she is eating normally. I am taking her to the vet on Monday (when they are open) but I will continue to monitor her behavior and give her the 1000mg vitamin c treatment for the next week.
Currently I also supplement my dog's food with sunflower lecithin and taurine, but will add vitamin c (200mg) daily to the mix. Vitamin C powder is a staple in any family's cabinet!
(Note: I have a toy poodle, and she is 7 years old, and weighs approximately 3-4kgs or 5-6lbs; Dosage was 1000mg vitamin c powder in a tablespoon of coconut oil)
I was able to cure my dog with mega doses of vitamin c. 4500 ml per day. I boiled chicken breast and stuffed 2 vitamins (1) 500 and (1) 1000 ml of vitamin c and I have never seen anything turn around so quickly. I read this cure on this site and it worked like a charm. I took my dog to the vet and they told me that my dog would die if I didn't get her surgery that cost between $1500.00 and $2500.00 depending on how she responded and recovered. Never was I told that mega doses of vitamin C would work. Well it did and I am grateful to the man that posted this cure. I can't believe that the vet wouldn't tell me about this cure. I guarantee you they know but money is more important than a dogs life.
My dog is a 12 year old terrier-lab mix who recently had open pyo. She suddenly lost appetite and became emaciated and had weak hind legs and pinkish vaginal discharge. Surgery for me was not an option considering her age and extreme weakness. In my opinion, surgery might kill her. She refused to eat but kept on drinking plenty of water.
I did an internet research and read somewhere that if everything else fails, try megadoses of vitamin C. I then tried to feed my dog boiled pork liver which she suddenly ate with gusto. She refused any other kind of food. Seeing her response, I added 1500 mg. of vitamin C (sodium ascorbate) to her food. That was in the evening. The following day, I fed her boiled pork liver in the morning, noon and night and added 1500 mg. sodium ascorbate for each meal. Everytime I fed her, I would add sodium ascorbate to her food. I read in my internet research that I could give her up to 3000 mg. sodium ascorbate to bowel tolerance. I read further that if the dog suffers diarrhea, I was to cut down on the vitamin C. I resolved to maintain my dog's dosage of sodium ascorbate to up to 4500 mg. per day. I kept on adding vitamin C to my dog's food until about one and a half month passed by when she suddenly had diarrhea after eating food with vitamin C. I then cut down on her vitamin C intake, limiting it to 2500 mg to 3000 mg per day. She never had diarrhea again with that limited dose. This went on for about 2 1/2 months then I noticed that her vaginal discharge gradually disappeared until it was totally gone.
Her pyometra has completely healed after about 3 months. She now has a very good appetite and has resumed her active lifestyle. She's no longer emaciated. I'm glad that I still have my dog with me because I really love her dearly.
Now I give her only 500 mg. vitamin C three times weekly with her food and she goes along very fine with it.

Method of Delivery,
For my dog I had great success mixing turmeric, powdered vitamin C, and some Ceylon cinnamon with extra virgin olive oil. Then mixing Manuka honey with that on a saucer. After dabbing my fingers for her to lick, the saucer was cleaned willingly.
I recently read the post and did research on pyometra on female dogs who go into estrus cycle and came across your article regarding manuka honey, tumeric and vitamin C. My dog is 13 years old and developed what appeared to be open pyometra and found the recommended homeopathic treatment after researching the options. I was fortunate that she had open and not closed pyometra and it appears after 2 weeks that she has recovered but I will need to keep her on a vitamin C treatment. Thought you might like to know that it worked. That still doesn't resolve the problem that she's 13 and has it been spayed.
I appreciate the information shared and I will continue to monitor the website and submit articles as needed. I am a former Healthcare professional by trade and I Hobby in entomology for relaxation.

Vitamin C, Turmeric, Manuka Honey for Pyometra
This worked wonders for my dog! She's a 9 yr old Chihuahua and this remedy healed her infection in about 1 1/2 weeks. I will continue to give her the treatment for another month to make sure it clears every thing up. But she is a new dog now without any pain or discharge. Thanks so much for posting this method! I will add that I decreased the amount of turmeric a little because it seemed to upset her stomach. Once I decreased the amount a small amount she's had no problem.
Manuka Honey, Turmeric and Vitamin C for Open Pyometra
Last night around 9 our Bulldog started to bleed but not the typical way she would she she would go into heat. In fact her last heat was only 8 weeks ago. We took her into the 24 hrs emergency as it was starting to get out of control quite rapidly and I could tell by feeling her ears that she had a fever. Throughout all this she acted like the same old Molly!
Anyways, after our meeting with the Dr.it turns out it is Pyometra. Now, with our dog, we cannot have her go surgery (or she would have been spayed LONGG ago)
She has too many health concerns already and specialists fear that she would die on the table from lack of oxygen due to her small trachea, large tongue and jaw issues.
We came home with 14 days of antibiotics and then came across your site-THANK YOU! I went and bough everything needed to concoct this paste and have administered it 3 times already today. She is having much less fluid today and the foul odor has left..thank goodness.
Fingers crossed this is not where her story ends! She is a true fighter and we will fight for her! Thank you for this forum...It has been extremely helpful!

The infection has slowed down and my dog has begun to come back to life, she had a coughing, sneezing, gaggin and runny nose, she has gotten much better over 9 days, I also checked her breathing and at rest now it is 28 breaths per minute. Thanks for the wonderful helpful advice

My 8 year old 45lb. mutt dog was on prednisone for an auto immune emergency situation...which led to many secondary infections. One of which I THINK was pyometra. Although my dog was spayed when we adopted her...they may have been a portion of her uterus left in tact.
She has had many of the symptoms of an OPEN PYOMETRA case:
- mucus (yellowish/green) discharge from the vulva
- majorly lethargic
- drinking tons of water
- not eating (lost 11 pounds)
- pale pink gums
- weakening of the back legs
- laying flat (stretched out, belly on floor) on cool surfaces
- constantly licking her vulva
Long story short...I hated the fact that my dog was on the chemical drug prednisone, and I wasn't about to put her through more vet visits, tests and drugs. So I found many posts about the positive effects of manuka honey, tumeric and vitamin c. I figured...I had nothing to loose, my dog was already skin and bones, and I was feeding her bone broth by a syringe. She was so sick that she didn't wag her tail or lift her head from her doggy bed. So I headed right out to my local organic store and gave her the first tincture/mixture the moment I got home. Since she wasn't eating I just had to take the mixture on my finger and smear it on her tongue so she would swallow it. She had it twice before we went to bed...and in the morning she was wagging her tail and lifting her head. By the next evening She allowed me to help her get up....and she wanted to go outside. Slowly after about a week of this treatment she gained her appetite back ( a little) and started eating more regularly, started being more active, and her energy level increased day by day.
Let me also tell you that during the 2 weeks on this treatment the mucus/discharge got a lot heavier, thicker and greener (gross right?). I just kept wiping her vulva and cleaning it up with a warm rag...and then immediately tossing the rags into a bin to be washed in hot water and bleach. But about half way through the treatment the mucus started to thin out, turn back to yellow-white in color and became less frequent.
3 weeks later she is pretty much herself again. Still a little weak in the back legs, and still, sometimes, in that flat position on the cool tile floor.BUT her energy level is WAY up, she is eating normal again, gums are back to bubble gum pink, not drinking as much water, etc.....and no more mucus! I'm still giving her the tincture/mixture 3x a day....with just tumeric + vit. c added to the honey in the first treatment of the day. I will probably continue to give her this until the strength is back in her back legs and she stops laying flat on the floor (cause she didn't ever do that before she was sick)
Here's my tincture/mixture - THREE TIMES per day
-1/4 tsp. manuka honey (100% pure MGO 400)
-half of a 1/8 tsp. tumeric (reg. powdered in the spice isle)
-half of a 1/8 tsp. vitamin c (with calcium ascorbate)
- read about the benefits of manuka honey.
- read about tumeric for dogs (http://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/turmeric-dogs/) scroll to bottom
- read about vitamin c for dogs (http://www.yoursadorably.com/vitamin-c-for-dogs-and-dosage/) read toward bottom about dosage
I always tend to be more cautious when starting a new remedy...and if I see that it's fine and working for my dog...than I increase gradually.
I hope you find this helpful...as much as I found the previous posts about this remedy helpful. I feel so lucky to know about EARTH CLINIC...this site has helped my entire family with treatment (successful treatments) for different ailments.
And let me also say...that if your gut tells you to take your dog to see the vet...PLEASE follow your instincts. I just choose to avoid the stress on my dog...and try a natural approach first. GOOD LUCK!
