Wondering “How long do dogs live?” is common for dog owners. Very often dogs for us are more than pets and we want them to live as long as possible. While some small breeds like Chihuahuas can live beyond 15 years, larger breeds generally have shorter lifespans. Proper care is key to extending a dog’s life, including a healthy diet, regular vet checkups, and understanding breed-specific health needs. Although reaching 20 years is rare for dogs, with dedicated care, it's possible to enhance their longevity significantly.
When your dog won't eat, it could be due to health or behavioral reasons. Consider a vet check for health concerns, create a calm environment, and try adjusting their diet to find what they enjoy. Understanding the cause helps you find the right solution for a happy and healthy eating routine for your furry friend.
