One out of four intact female dogs over 4 years of age will probably develop one or more breast tumors along the mammary gland chains.

Half of all tumors are malignant and unfortunately, half to 75% of them will kill the dog by recurrence or spreading (metastasizing) to the lungs within one to two years.

Puppies under six months of age shouldn't stay in a crate for more than three or four hours at a time.

They can't control their bladders and bowels for that long.

The same goes for adult dogs being housetrained.

Physically, an older dog can hold it, but they don't know they're supposed to.

Heat usually lasts between 2-4 weeks. Early in the cycle, a female dog may not be receptive to male dogs, although some are receptive through the entire cycle. It can be shorter or longer and you'll know the cycle is over when all her vulva returns to its normal size and there's no more bleeding or discharge.

The estrus cycle has four stages.

The first stage is called proestrus.

This lasts approximately 10 days and it is during this stage that your dog will bleed from the vaginal area.

This is your dog's preparation for pregnancy phase, but she will not want to mate with a male during this time.

Potty Training. Potty training is an important step in training your dog.

Training a puppy to pee outside takes 4 to 6 months on average, but it can be a lot quicker if you are very consistent about taking your puppy outside every few hours.

Some puppies can be potty trained in as little as two weeks.

Most average cats and dogs take fourteen days for their incisions to heal.

Side note: that's about how long it takes for people to heal, too.

It's good to remember that if a person had a surgery like your pet just had, they would be restricted from activity for about a month!

Generally, you shouldn't start running with your puppy before six months of age; any earlier and you can risk affecting his growing joints and muscles.

Some large and giant breeds may not be ready until later.
