OHE is the best solution to uterine infection. Dog's that get a uterine infection tend to get them recurrently. Medical therapy for uterine infection is only rarely successful and then they tend to re-occur.
The incident of uterine infection is extremely high (nearing 100%) as a dog ages. Even in older dogs elective OHE is a very good idea before infection occurs and it becomes an emergency surgery.
