DR. ANDREA M. BRODIE, DVM
A. Of course we cannot predict how long an animal lives, however if your dog is and stays healthy and you feed good quality food and take good care of him, he can live 14 or 15 years. Genetics play a large role in this, so some dogs die earlier despite the best care and some die later ....there is a code in the cells of the body, so to speak, that determines when death should take place.
