Understanding Mastitis, Metritis, and Agalactia

Mastitis is a painful infection of the mammary glands often seen in nursing pets. Symptoms can include swollen, red, and hot mammary glands, along with lethargy and fever.

Metritis is a severe uterine infection that typically follows birthing. Pets may display symptoms such as fever, lethargy, decreased appetite, and foul-smelling discharge.

Agalactia is a condition where a mother pet is unable to produce sufficient milk for her young. It can lead to malnutrition in newborns and can also be stressful for the mother.
