The right method to calculate your dog’s age in human years
The equation to calculate your dog’s age in human years: 16 ln(dog age) + 31 = human age.
Don’t worry, you don’t have to do all the complex math, we simplified it for you.
We made a calculator using the same formula as a dog years to human years calculator.
Is the year-old technique to find how many dog years to human years is wrong?
According to that widespread belief, a dog’s year on Earth is equivalent to seven human years. it is absolutely wrong.
This is how researchers found new formula
The researchers studied a phenomenon called DNA methylation to understand how dog’s age. As mammal species grow older, their DNA accumulates methyl groups, which “cling” to it and alter certain genes. These clusters do not change the genetic material itself, but they do attach themselves to the molecular entity and could turn on or off particular genes.
Please go through the related article on how the researchers come to the conclusion.
Methlyation occurs at a constant rate as people grow older, allowing researchers to estimate someone’s age using the “epigenetic clock.”
In the new study, which has yet to be peer-reviewed and is now available on the preprint site bioRxiv, a group of scientists led by Tina Wang of the University of California, San Diego looked at people’s epigenetic clocks in relation to canines to better understand genes linked with aging.
They chose canines for this study of the aging process because they share the same environments as humans and are occasionally given medical treatment, much like humans.
The researchers studied the methylation rates in 104 Labrador retrievers aged four weeks to 16 years old. They then compared them to published methylation profiles of 320 people ranging in age from one to 103. (They also assessed both against 133 mouse methylation profiles.)
When they compared dog DNA data to that from humans, the researchers came to a conclusion and developed a new equation to determine the dog’s comparable human age.
- The equation: 16 ln(dog age) + 31 = human age.
This is how you can manually calculate dog years in human years
For iPhone calculators that have the natural logarithm feature, or “ln,” function.
This is how to calculate on iPhone:
First type in the dog’s age. Then hit the “ln” button. Multiply that result by 16; then add 31.
If you’re using Google’s scientific calculator:
First, hit “ln,” then type in the dog’s age, then equal it out. Next, multiply by 16, and then add 31.
What is 7 years in dog years means in human years?
According to the new formula, 7 years aged dog is exactly 62 years and one month old in human years. he has just in his sexagenarian perid.
What is 7 months in dog years?
The 7-month-old dog is exactly 22 years and 4 months old in human years. Yes, he is just passed his teenage years and he is a vicenarian.
