Thanks for using, I'm Dr. Dan and I'll try to help you.

The normal time for a stomach to completely empty dry dog kibble into the intestine is 1-8 hours. For liquids the stomach can empty almost immediately into the intestine. In an abnormal dog's system it can take up to twice that long to empty the stomach.

I hope this helps, best wishes.
