This report describes the clinical presentation, diagnosis and treatment of a queen with open pyometra. Lethargy, anorexia and previous treatment failure were the main reasons resulting in referral for diagnostic evaluation. The history, haematological and biochemical profiles and abdominal radiographs revealed open pyometra. Following ovariohysterectomy and antibiotic therapy there was total resolution of clinical signs. Histopathology of the uterus showed severe calcification. The unique part of this report was the rare appearance of multiple opacities in the radiographs. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first report of radiographic opacities in a domestic short-haired queen with open pyometra.
