When Do Male Puppies Balls Drop

<?xml encoding=”utf-8″ ??>

No feeding changes will be needed though, due to the hormonal changes, you may notice a mild change in appetite in your dog, but this is not something to be overly concerned about. Be aware that there may be some discharge from the vulva and blood so you might want to avoid taking her into certain areas (such as carpeted floors!) or it may mean that it’s not appropriate for her to do activities such as going into work with you if you have a Pets At Work policy.

As the physical signs of oestrus subside, you may notice that your dog starts to become clingy or restless due to the hormonal changes.

False pregnancy in dogs

False pregnancy in dogs is quite common, also known as a ‘pseudopregnancy’, or a ‘phantom pregnancy’, it’s a condition where her body feels like it is pregnant, even though she is not. If this occurs, it tends to happen about 10-12 weeks after the end of her season. She may display the following symptoms:

  • Whining and will appear obviously distressed.
  • Nesting – she’ll probably try and nest anywhere and everywhere.
  • She may become possessive of objects or toys and might also carry these around like babies.
  • Increased clinginess.
  • Decreased appetite.
  • Milk production.
  • Mammary enlargement.
  • Milky vaginal discharge.
  • Anorexia.

Luckily, false pregnancy in dogs does pass (normally between 1-2 weeks), and usually no treatment is needed, although if she shows severe aggression or very obsessive nesting behaviour your vet may advise some medical management. You can help by removing the objects she is attempting to ‘nurse’ or nest with, and thereby stop the association she is having with mothering-style behaviour, and ensure you keep her busy and occupied with exercise and activities. It is worth being aware that often once false pregnancy in dogs starts, she will continue to have them each season.

Male dog puberty symptoms

Males do not have a season like bitches, and once sexually mature they can breed all the time, although are at their most fertile between around 12-18 months old.

Usually, the testicles in a male puppy will descend into the scrotum very shortly after birth but sometimes they may take over one month and, very rarely, up to 1 year (although usually they have descended by 3 months of age when you take your puppy for his second vaccine). Once the testicles descend and his testosterone levels begin to rise, the puppy will start to lift their leg to urinate. The increased hormones can sometimes lead to behavioural changes including aggression, but these are very variable and differ between individual dogs.
