From: Pyometra in Bitches Induces Elevated Plasma Endotoxin and Prostaglandin FMetabolite Levels

Figure 1

Plasma endotoxin levels in the control group and the pyometra bitches measured at five different sampling occasions; ET 1 = before general anaesthesia, ET 2 = during skin incision, ET 3 = after removal of the uterus/major part of the surgical procedure, ET 4 = during skin suturing, ET 5 = the day after surgery, ET X = mean endotoxin levels of all sampling occasions. Error bars represent 1 SE of the mean. The endotoxin levels were significantly (P < 0.05) higher in the pyometra bitches for sampling occasion ET 3, ET 4 and also for ET X.
