    Okay...So My Daschund thinks she is pregnet (carrying stuffed animals around with her) And whining very loudly...Enough to disturb us to be able to not sleep. How much longer will this last? What should we do?
    Sandy Willis, DVM, DACVIM responded:
    Hi Ziggyppz,

    Sounds like behavior associated with pseudopregnancy. Is she spayed? Removing the pseudo puppies (the stuffed animals) and distracting her with other play items, walks, time with you all, will help to eliminate the behavior.

    If she continues or seems ill in any way, please contact your veterinarian.

    Dr. Sandy
