On Feb. 20, 1950, a 12 year old Boston bitch was admitted to Stange Memorial Clinic with a history of having hemorrhaged from the uterus over a period of three weeks. Upon admittance the dog showed extreme depression and a very pronounced anemia of the mucus membranes. A diagnosis of hemorrhagic metritis was made.
