LPD 019 – Dog Aging Project with Dr. Silvan Urfer – Little Pampered Dog
I've been following the work of a team of scientists at the University of Washington studying aging in dogs. They call their research the Dog Aging Project. The goal of The Dog Aging Project is not just merely to extend the lifespan of dogs, but rather, to extend the "healthspan" of dogs. As Dr. Silvan Urfer suggested in the podcast interview - what is the point of a longer life for our dogs if they are not healthy and don't feel well?
I reached out to the Dog Aging project and Dr. Urfer graciously responded providing me with detailed information over email and even more extensive information in this podcast episode. You'll absolutely love meeting him in this podcast.
