It is necessary to distinguish from other reasons for which there is a disease :
The first signs of a piometra at a cat appear approximately a month later after the end of the period of sexual activity during which in a uterus conditions, favorable for growth of pathogenic microorganisms, remain. The symptomatology of one of kinds of a purulent endometritis in many respects depends on in what form pathological process proceeds.
