If it's three days and the mother dog hasn't been feeding (and the pups are in the process of weaning), the mother dog should start gradually producing less milk and may dry up within a week.

It shouldn’t take long, but it depends on the coat and the breed. The longer your dog’s coat is, the longer it is going to take to dry. The shorter it is, the faster it will dry. Breeds with a lot of loose skin and wrinkles, like pugs, bulldogs, and boxers, will take a little extra time to dry regardless of the method you’re using.

Answer: If it's three days and the mother dog hasn't been feeding (and the pups are in the process of weaning), the mother dog should start gradually producing less milk and may dry up within a week. If the mother dog isn't producing milk for three days and the pups aren't in the process of weaning, then it's important to see a vet and determine why there is a milk shortage.

Speaking very broadly, operating at optimum efficiency, a dog can process a can of wet food in as few as four hours, while the same amount of dry food can take eight hours to make the same journey!...

However, it can take as little as 4 hours, or as much as 12 hours. Interestingly, this is significantly quicker than humans, who take between 20 and 30 hours to completely digest a meal. Between 4 and 12 hours is a fairly big window, so let’s take a closer look at some of the factors that impact dog digestion time.

Towel Drying Dog After Bath . The towel dry method is a very common option many pet owners consider; however, it is not the most efficient. Towel drying will take longer to dry your dog (even with a large towel), especially if your pet has long hair or a thick coat.

Once applied, Roundup is either absorbed by the plants that have been treated or binded to the surrounding soil. The product is then broken down by bacteria in the soil. Depending on the climate and type of soil, glyphosate may remain present for up to six months.

Once you open a bag, a box, or a can of dry food or kibbles, you will need approximately two weeks to feed the dog with the whole amount in the bag or can before it goes bad. Even as you have two weeks to finish the open can or bag of food, some other things will affect the freshness and quality of the food.

The milk should be completely dried up after a couple of weeks but this is a gradual process. The teats will still be swollen initially and produce milk. Then the milk will stop coming, the swelling will decrease, and after one to two weeks, the mammary glands should no longer be swollen under the teats.

No, rawhide does not dissolve in the dog's stomach. In fact, the opposite is true — the rawhide swells up. Far from being broken down, rawhide forces your dog to pass the pieces they swallow, making for a risk of bowel blockage.
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.

According to this report, the total first-year cost of owning a dog is $1,270 and for a cat it's $1,070.

As you can see, having a pet can cost you over $1,000 in the first year, and well over $500 each additional year.

Depending on the food you buy and sudden medical expenses, the costs could be much higher.


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.


Dogs also lick because they like the taste of an owner's salty skin and out of habit.

Mostly, with domestic Dogs, it's a sign of affection.

Licking releases pleasurable endorphins which gives Dogs a feeling of comfort and pleasure — like the feeling people get when they are biting their nails — it relieves stress.


If your dog is drinking excessively (polydipsia) it is possibly because he is losing excess amounts of water for any of a number of reasons.

While a number of diseases result in excess water intake and urine output, the most common of these diseases include kidney failure, diabetes mellitus and Cushing's disease.


It's very common for dog owners to punish their dogs for growling.

Unfortunately, this often suppresses the growl—eliminating his ability to warn us that he's about to snap, literally and figuratively.

On other occasions, punishing a growling, uncomfortable dog can induce him to escalate into full-on aggression.
