Q. My 2 year old siberian husky has been really sad She sleeps alot and doesnt play as much this has been hapening since her last heat cycle 2 weeks ago

A. She might have developed a uterine infection, if so it is a serious condition and i would recommend getting it checked today by your vet.

Pyometra - uterine infection, occurs in unspayed female dogs and causes the uterus to be filled with pus, it usually starts just after the last heat cycle and get worse during the weeks that follow. eventually it is a life threatening condition.

The treatment is surgical - the uterus is removed and this solves the problem forever.
