No, dogs do not menstruate, instead they go through "estrus" or "heat cycles" - meaning they are also fertile during these periods - approximately twice a year and last around 21 days. The dog may experience bloody discharge and increased urination. Some breeds bleed and a diaper may be necessary.

If you choose to have your dog spayed, she will not go through estrus.

Bitches (the female dogs) menstruate twice a year, which is every six months. They are only fertile 10 to 14 days at each menstrual cycle and then menstruate for about a week.

Yes, typically twice a year with varying amount of blood. Some dogs will have minor spotting, others will have drips of blood on the floor or ground. This usually last three or four days.

Why do other animals not menstruation?

Actually, many female mammals do menstruate. Those that have live born young have extra protection inside their uterus when an egg is released from the overies. This happens less often in some animals, which is why they do not menstruate as often as humans do. If the animal does not get pregnant this layer of tissue breaks down and becomes menstrual fluid.
