As far as i've read, usually pyometra in ferrets develops during false pregnancies and after jill-jabs ( or at least this is what the English and German vets concluded ). It is mainly a hormonal thing. Some hormone imbalance + an open cervix that allows bacteria to get inside
I'm glad you found the answer and were able to resolve it. I hope she recovers quickly. Good luck in your studies. It sounds like you are well on your way to being a great vet. Would you be willing to take an occasional question from members here? A lot of members have vets that aren't very experienced with ferrets.
