Recent observations by Veterinarians show that the average lifespan of their patients is getting longer. We know that humans are living longer then they ever have. With healthier living options and medical science we are now seeing many people become centenarians. Just the same is applying to your pets. Pets now have more medical options, they are less likely to just be left loose to run the streets and owners have become more aware of how to give their pets a healthier life.
Now more dogs are living up to 15 and 16 years old who in the past would not have made it nearly that far. The smaller breeds tend to have a bit longer life span then the larger breeds while the giant breeds have the shortest and the toy breeds the longest. The most common killer of dogs is cancer, and some if detected earlier enough can even be cured.
Even the cats are extending their 9 lives to 20 years or even more with Siamese and Abyssinians living the longest. The most common killer of cats is liver or kidney failure in their older years.
Perhaps there is some parallel in that pets and humans both are living longer. Maybe it’s the love and comfort of their pets that keep the elderly aging and the pets still around because of the bond they share together.
