Medicent Lacabnil; adjunctive therapy for false pregnancy (Pseudocyesis) in Dogs
False pregnancy (pseudopregnancy, phantom pregnancy) is common in bitches, because of the social structure of the wolf pack. In the wolf pack only the alpha female mates but all other females in the pack need to be able to care for the puppies so they experience the same hormonal changes as the alpha female who is having the litter. In our dogs this condition which may involve both behavioural and physical changes, usually occurs somewhere between 6 and 12 weeks after a bitch goes through her normal heat cycle
Signs can be ;
- Nesting behaviour, such as digging, making a bed or den to deliver the phantom “puppies.”
- Mothering of stuffed toys and other things, treating them as her “puppies” and protecting them accordingly.
- Enlarged nipples, possibly producing milk or serous fluid.
- Behavioural changes such as clinginess, refusing to eat, restlessness, whining, depression or aggression
