Brittany Puppies

Looking for a new bird dog and a great family pet?

Pollitt Farms is located in South Central Iowa and we home raise 1-2 litters of AKC registered Brittany Spaniel Puppies per year.

We are not mass breeders!

Our puppies are raised indoors, we bathe them regularly and play with them every day. This means when your brittany puppy goes home with you, they are highly social, love to play fetch, like taking bathes, and are usually partially potty trained.

All puppies leave our care with tail docked, dew claws removed, vaccinations and wormings current. As placement time nears, we match puppy personalities with the specific characteristics that each family is looking for. We like to keep in touch with our puppy families and are happy to announce that all of our brittany puppies have been placed in loving homes all over the United States.

IN MEMORIAM

I've been dreading this for a while.....it is with deep sorry that I need to announce the passing of our sweet Sandi. She died quite unexpectedly on September 17, 2014 of pyometra, which is a uterine infection. Apparently, there aren't many signs or symptoms until it's too late...which is what happened to us. She was fine on Monday, on Tuesday she acted like she ate something that didn't agree with her. When she didn't get better, I scooped her up and took her to the vet on Wednesday morning 8AM and she was gone by noon.

The important thing to know is that it can happen in any female dog that has not been spayed. If your dog has recently completed a heat cycle and has a foul or unusual odor that doesn't (go away after a few minutes), bloating or a lot of vaginal discharge (which may or may not happen depending on whether the cervix is open or closed) or seeminly unquenchabe thirst. I would suggest having her checked.

In retrospect, the odor and unquenchable thirst maybe the only sign/symptoms that we missed because we just didn't know. By the time the symptoms start to show, it may have been already be too late. Symptoms are stong odor, extreme listlessness, unquenchable thirst and vomitting.

What is Pyometra?
Pyometra is defined as an infection in the uterus. Pyometra is considered a serious and life threatening condition that must be treated quickly and aggressively. Pyometra is a secondary infection that occurs as a result of hormonal changes in the female's reproductive tract. During estrus ("heat"), white blood cells, which normally protect against infection, are inhibited from entering the uterus. This allows sperm to safely enter the female's reproductive tract without being damaged or destroyed by these immune system cells. Following estrus ("heat") in the dog, progesterone hormone levels remain elevated up to two months and cause thickening of the lining of the uterus in preparation for pregnancy and fetal development. If pregnancy does not occur for several consecutive estrus cycles, the uterine lining continues to increase in thickness until cysts often form within the tissues (a condition called Cystic Endometrial Hyperplasia). The thickened, cystic lining secretes fluids that create an ideal environment for bacteria to grow in. Additionally, high progesterone levels inhibit the ability of the muscles in the wall of the uterus to contract and expel accumulated fluids or bacteria. The combination of these factors often leads to infection.

Pyometra may occur in any sexually intact young to middle-aged dog; however, it is most common in older dogs.
