When Your Dog is 12 Years Old

The old adage of “one year of a human’s life is equal to seven years in a dog’s life” is all wrong. Dogs mature more quickly than humans, so a simple one-to-
seven calculation just isn’t accurate. The truth is that when your dog hits the age of 12 years, he has reached the equivalent of 64 human years if he’s a small dog (20 pounds or less); 69 human years if he’s a medium dog (21 to 50 pounds); and 77 human years if he’s a large dog (more than 50 pounds).

Dogs can develop health problems that make them unable to urinate. Bladder stones are the most common cause. Some breeds, such as Schnauzers, Yorkshire Terriers, Bichon Frises and Pomeranians, are more prone to this. Underlying illnesses like Cushing’s disease and portosystemic shunts also increase the risk for stones, as does the presence of a urinary tract infection. Males seem to be at higher risk than females.
