Wanted: 10,000 dogs for the largest-ever study on aging in canines
On this we can all agree: The lifespan of a dog is far too short. The Dog Aging Project hopes to change that. Researchers are hoping to study a group of 10,000 dogs over the course of 10 years to see whether they can improve the life expectancy of canines and their overall quality of life. Dogs' lives are six to 12 times shorter than that of humans, according to a study by the Frontiers in Veterinary Science.
