Dawn Watson's Pet Tip of the Week: A Dog's Aging

Dawn O Watson/CNBNews Contributor


Previously, a dog’s age was calculated by multiplying his age by seven. A new theory has been discovered that adjusts that timeline. 

LogoWhen a dog is a year old, his aging factors can be compared to that of a thirty-year old human. The new theory suggests that when dogs are young, they age rapidly. A four-year-old dog is the equivalent of a fifty-two-year-old human. Then, when a dog is seven years old, dog aging slows. The changes are referred to as epigenetic changes. 

Research is ongoing—this particular timeline measures only the aging factors of medium to large sized dogs such as the Labrador and Golden retrievers.
