The results of a questionnaire provided data about owners' perceptions of the cause of death of over 3000 British dogs. The mean age at death (all breeds, all causes) was 11 years one month, but in dogs dying of natural causes it was 12 years eight months. Only 8 per cent of dogs lived beyond 15, and 64 per cent of dogs died of disease or were euthanased as a result of disease. Nearly 16 per cent of deaths were attributed to cancer, twice as many as to heart disease. Neutered females lived… Expand
Longevity and mortality of owned dogs in England.
TLDR
The results of multivariable modelling indicated that longevity in crossbred dogs exceeded purebred dogs by 1.2 years and that increasing bodyweight was negatively correlated with longevity. Expand
Mortality of purebred and mixed-breed dogs in Denmark.
TLDR
The Bernese Mountaindog, the group of Molossian types and the Sighthounds had the shortest life span and Mixed-breed dogs had a higher median age at death than the entire population, but breeds like Shetland Sheepdog, Poodle and Dachshund exceeded this age. Expand
Average Life Expectancy, the Most Common Cause of Death and Illness of Giant Dog Breeds
TLDR
The average lifespan in giant breed dogs was found to be 7.60 years and the most common cause of spontaneous death among giant breeds was gastric dilatation and torsion, especially in selected Mastiff type breeds of dogs. Expand
Life expectation and causes of death in dogs in the metropolitan area of
TLDR
Canine life expectation found in this survey was shorter than that observed in other countries and infeccious diseases constitute the major cause of death. Expand
Heart disease as a cause of death in insured Swedish dogs younger than 10 years of age.
TLDR
Breed, age, and sex affect cardiac mortality in certain breeds of dogs, but no effects of month and geographic location were identified, which can assist clinicians in establishing diagnoses and breeders in defining priorities for preventative measures. Expand
Do Female Dogs Age Differently Than Male Dogs?
TLDR
This analysis suggests that the majority of apparent sex differences in the wider canine populations may be due to the effects of neutering, and suggests limited sex effects on either longevity or causes of death in the companion dog. Expand
Exceptional longevity in pet dogs is accompanied by cancer resistance and delayed onset of major diseases.
TLDR
The reduction in cancer mortality in oldest-old pet dogs mimics that seen in human centenarians and provides strong rationale for using this animal model to study comparative mechanisms of cancer resistance in the extreme aged. Expand
Exploring mechanisms of sex differences in longevity: lifetime ovary exposure and exceptional longevity in dogs
TLDR
Pet dogs are studied to show that lifetime ovary exposure, a factor not previously evaluated in women, is associated with exceptional longevity and introduce a conceptual framework for designing additional studies in pet dogs to define the ovary‐sensitive biological processes that promote healthy human longevity. Expand
Age pattern of mortality in eight breeds of insured dogs in Sweden.
TLDR
To describe the age patterns for risk of death in selected breeds of dogs insured for life in a Swedish animal-insurance company in 1996, several analytical approaches were used. Expand
Mortality in over 350,000 Insured Swedish Dogs from 1995–2000: II. Breed-Specific Age and Survival Patterns and Relative Risk for Causes of Death
TLDR
The age patterns for total and diagnostic mortality and for general causes of death (trauma, tumour, locomotor, heart and neurological) are presented for numerous breeds and decision-making at the population and individual level about health promotion efforts and treatment and prognosis of disease events are supported.

[Life expectancy and cause of death in dogs. I. The situation in mixed breeds and various dog breeds].
TLDR
The present study on life expectancy and cause of death is based upon data from 9,248 dogs, and dogs of mixed breeding tended not to differ from purebreds either in their life expectancy or in their cause ofdeath. Expand

TLDR
It appears that within the domestic dogs the large body size is accompanied by shorter life span and, in the two largest breeds, decreased cellular growth potential. Expand

If the probability of dying for cats at early ages decreases, the fundamental pattern of dying curve for cats seems to be a similar figure of dogs. Expand

As part of a survey of companion animal veterinary practices in England the records of 863 euthanased dogs and cats were studied, with a total of 478 were dogs and 385 cats. Expand
Longevity, Genes, and Aging

Because of its complexity, the aging process takes us into the realm of integrative biology, and thus, biogerontology should prove instrumental in deciphering the functional and regulatory circuitry of the sequenced genome. Expand
Oxidative Stress, Caloric Restriction, and Aging
TLDR
Support for this hypothesis includes the following observations: (i) Overexpression of antioxidative enzymes retards the age-related accrual of oxidative damage and extends the maximum life-span of transgenic Drosophila melanogaster and (ii) Variations in longevity among different species inversely correlate with the rates of mitochondrial generation of the superoxide anion radical and hydrogen peroxide.
