Letty is a 2 year old Female Newfoundland who presented to me to help manage this rare condition that was diagnosed during an attempted laparoscopic spay procedure. All the viscera are encased in a thick fascail covering and there is no way to spay her. The owner is very concerned that the bitch will get a pyometra if she lives long enough for that to happen and wanted my help for treating the EPS as well as preventing pyometra in the future.
In the exam room, this dog seemed great and normal. Pink and fleshy tongue. Strong and slippery pulses Some active GB/TH points. I needled: BH, GV-14, GB-25, GB-34, BL-19, BL-22 and Kid-3. I dispensed XCHT.
On a follow-up visit, she was still asymptomatic and healthy and her pulse and active acupuncture points had moderated on Xiao Chai Hu Tang.
I told the owner I would do some additional "Research" on pyometra prevention.
