How Old Is Your Dog? (In Human Years)

Dog age infographic

Your dog is only as old as he feels, right? Well, it's a bit more complicated than that.

Smaller dogs can have longer lifespans than the giant breeds, but may suffer from more dental problems that can slow them down.

Certain breeds defy this chart with exceptionally healthy gene pools that ensure a longer, healthier life. Some overbred breeds can suffer from congenital defects that bring their lifespan down dramatically as compared to other breeds.

Consult your vet regarding age-related changes

Be sure to get yearly checkups with your vet! As you can see, big changes can happen to a dog in just a year. Your vet will give the best advice for supplements and treatments to ensure your dog feels like a pup well into his golden years!

From a computer, if you right click on the image, choose the option to save the image to your computer. Once you've saved it, you should be able to print the image like any photo.
