The dog’s digestive process involves their mouth, esophagus, stomach, pylorus, small intestine, large intestine and the rectum. The liver and pancreas are also involved in the digestive process. When eating, most often a dog will wolf (pun intended) his food down, swallowing large chunks. This is thought to be a habit from the wild state, the days when the dog’s ancestors had to eat their food fast.
