Sheikh Tajamul Islam, Anand Kumar Singh, MOHD Younis Ganaie, Iyman Binti Fayaz and Waseem Ul Firdos

A Pomeranian bitch 1.5 year old was presented to Sanjay Gandhi Animal Care Centre Rajouri Garden (SGACC), New Delhi, India, for treatment. Abnormal signs were observed by owner few days before which revealed restlessness, anorexia, aggression, nesting behaviour and licking. Clinical examination revealed enlargement of mammary glands and milk secretion with normal vitals. It was diagnosed pseudopregnancy on the basis of clinical signs and observations as clinical signs are sufficient to diagnose the pseudopregnancy in bitch. The bitch was treated with cabergoline @ 5mg/kg BW orally and pulsatilla 30c @ 3 drops orally BID for 5 days. Owner was also advised to restrict the nesting and self nursing of bitch by applying e-collar. The bitch recovered uneventfully with normal clinical signs.
