Nowadays, the average life expectancy of dogs is considerably higher than in 1980.
In the past, unlike today, there was a high risk of diseases like heartworms and measles because there were many cases of grazing or growing them in the yard.
There are many dogs living indoors with their owners, so the risk of these diseases has been reduced, leading to the death of diabetes, heart failure, and lifestyle diseases such as cancer due to age.
Dog's age over four times faster than humans, as much as seven times.
- For small dogs live around 15 years old
- For large dogs, 10 years old.
- But of course, there are dogs that live about 15 years for large dogs and over 20 years for small dogs.
The official record of a dog’s life is that he lived in Cattle Dog, a sheepdog living in Australia, for 29 years and 5 months.
