Ill Dog, vomiting - Is at vets, but the dont know!

My friends dog is undergoing surgery at this moment because she has so much fluid everywhere inside and to stop her getting a nasty infection the vets are giving her a hysterectomy. They have given her an ultra sound and found only the fluid, blood tests are all normal, xrays showed nothing. Apart from the fluid, the vet has no idea what is the problem. She was being sick and became very lethargic thats why she went to the vets. She is being given water introveniously, she is not eating, also she is on morphine. She is 12 years old.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what the problem could be?

Pyometria from being unspayed. Can be deadly, lucky the dog is still alive!

Thank you for your reply luba,

I have looked it up on the www, and it does indeed look like thats what she has. She recovered from the operation this evening and is still doing okay. I shall tell my friend in the morning, and make sure she knows to tell the vet and also make sure she gets anti-biotics for 'Bridey'.

Thanks again
