"How long will my dog live?"

People often ask me "How long will my dog live?" It's a pretty complicated question, but today I'd like to help answer it.

Recently, I saw a client with a 19-year old dog. If I didn't know how old this dog was, I'd guess he was 10-12 years old. His owner took really great care of him and it showed. The oldest reported dog was 28 years old at the time of death.

Today dogs can live longer than ever. Life expectancy varies greatly by breed, but averages 10-12 years across all breeds. The ASPCA estimates that during the 1950s and '60s, people began taking much better care of their pets. This led to an increase of 2-3 years in average canine lifespan. Here is more information on life expectancy in dogs.
Life expectancy in dogs depends on many things, but the most important factor is whether he is an indoor-only dog or an outdoor dog. The average expectancies vary significantly between dogs who live indoors all the time and dogs who venture outside.

Indoor dogs generally live from 6-18 years of age. Outdoor dogs generally have much shorter lives.

Their deaths are typically due to traumas such as being hit by a car or being involved in a dog attack. Outdoor dogs are also more susceptible to several deadly viruses that are spread by fighting or prolonged close contact with an infected animal. This brings up a common question - what can you do to keep your dog safe outside? Go to: Care for the Outdoor Dog

Keep your dog healthy by feeding a high quality diet, providing routine vaccinations and physical examinations
