LA GRAVIDANZA ISTERICA

Conosciuta anche come “gravidanza immaginaria”, la gravidanza isterica non è una patologia ma più che altro una disfunzione ormonale e comportamentale che interessa le cagne non sterilizzate: la cagna è “convinta” di essere incinta tanto che, in alcuni casi, simula anche il parto e assume comportamenti materni verso oggetti inanimati.

I sintomi si presentano a distanza di 1-2 mesi dal calore e sono i seguenti:
– Nausea
– Vomito
– Inappetenza o aumento dell’appetito
– Tendenza a fare il nido e accudire peluches o altri oggetti come fossero i suoi cuccioli
– Letargia generale
Mammelle ingrossate e produzione di latte più o meno abbondante.

Quest’ultimo sintomo è il più importante e da solo permette di emettere diagnosi di pseudogravidanza.

Trattandosi di una condizione parafisiologica, non sempre è necessario intervenire farmacologicamente; sarà il veterinario, in sede di visita, a valutare l’entità dei sintomi e la condizione generale di salute della cagna.

Viceversa, se sottovalutati, questi sintomi possono portare a dolorose mastiti.

Di per sé, la gravidanza isterica, non è un fenomeno grave ma, quando recidiva ad ogni calore, diventa importante intervenire in maniera drastica per evitare che la situazione degeneri in patologie più serie come l’aumento dell’incidenza dei tumori mammari, a causa della distensione esagerata degli acini ghiandolari, l’ipossia cellulare e l’aumento dei radicali liberi.

La soluzione definita è l’ovariectomia (sterilizzazione) che elimina del tutto il verificarsi di queste situazioni.

*CURIOSITÀ
Oltre a verificarsi anche nelle gatte, sebbene con sintomi meno marcati, sono riportati, seppur raramente, casi riferibili a questa condizione anche nella donna.
