We deal with $n$-dimensional complete submanifolds immersed with parallel nonzero mean curvature vector ${\bf H}$ in the hyperbolic space $\mathbb{H}^{n+p}$. In this setting, we establish sufficient conditions to guarantee that such a submanifold $M^n$ must be pseudo-umbilical, which means that ${\bf H}$ is an umbilical direction. In particular, we conclude that $M^n$ is a minimal submanifold of a small hypersphere of $\mathbb{H}^{n+p}$.
