After a tie, it is good to not let the dam pee for 15 minutes, but MOST important is to check your male, and make sure that his penis has gone back inside of him and is not strangled in hair or stuck out.

Male dogs can start to have sperm at seven months old, but ten months is more common. Young dogs do not have quality sperm. Almost all dogs will have sperm by one year.
Getting stuck together is normal. Do NOT ice them to get them apart. The male is supposed to swell up and get stuck inside the female for two to 30 minutes. At this time if you feel the sire and dam in this area you will feel pulsating. When you hear someone say they got a 13-minute tie, this means they were locked together for 13 minutes.
Stud dogs are at their prime between 18 months and 4 years old (or 5), after that, the quality of the sperm starts to lessen, and the ability to penetrate eggs, lessens. By 10 years old, most stud dogs do not produce sperm that will impregnate a bitch.

Lumps and bumps cause a lot of questions to arise. “How big is too big?” “Is this serious?” “Should I have it removed now or watch it?” These are all very common questions that veterinarians hear from their clients regarding growths. There is not a perfect answer for all lumps and bumps, but some should be addressed sooner rather than later.
There are many causes for lumps and bumps on your pet. Some common causes include fat, tumors (benign and malignantVery virulent or infectious.), cysts, infection (abscess), allergic reactions and swelling from injury or hernia. A hernia occurs when one tissue or organ protrudes through another into an abnormal place on the body, often causing a lump or bump. It is important to recognize that, with the exception of allergic reactions and abscesses, your veterinarian is unable to know what type of lump is growing just from feeling it alone. Many lumps, both serious and less serious ones, can feel and look identical.
