Dog Consuming Dog Urine

I was wondering if it is normal for my soon to be 2 year old male dog (Maxwell) to consume the urine from my new soon to be 7 month old female pup? I don't know about the rest of you, but I find this revolting... YUCK!

You are going have to more specific. Is he just licking to wash the area? If so, this is normal.

Dogs will be dogs. Let them be themselves. I find it amazing that people can't cope with the basic stuff. Don't be such prudes.

I was going to ask if your dog was neutered or not, because his behavior is normal for an un-neutered male and a female in heat. Actually, most males (with the exception of humans I hope!) will lick urine of females in heat. I have observed this in horses, dogs, pigs, cats (and other animals on discovery channel ie. deer, lions, tigers, zebras). There is no way to stop this unless you neuter your male, and even then he might still do it. Hope this helps. No licking faces!! Gross!!

Is it possible for the dog urine to damage the paint of a car, and if so how much and what is the process can it happen in 1 2 days or does it take weeks months?

A female in season will attract males from miles around. You will probably have pups to deal with and a 7 month-old is young to have pups. If you are going to spay her do it soon. Female dogs remain healthier for life if they are spayed early.

My dog is a Shih Tzu that I rescued. She is approx. 2 years old. I found that she is "pad trained". Sometimes when she urinates a large amount, she will drink up the excess on the pad. Is this a bad habit from the past? Maybe not having enough water or is this a normal thing?

My 15 year old male licks his urine all the time, I think since he started dribbling urine with old age. My question is, could this be what is causing him to cough?
