Ep 34: The dog aging project - what's that all about?!
Show Notes

Ever heard of the dog aging project? Well, even if you haven't yet, you should!  In this episode, Dr. Jen the vet and Dr. Jason Chatfield are joined by Dr. Kate Creevy, the Chief Veterinary Officer for the dog aging project. 
"The Dog Aging Project is an innovative research initiative that brings together a community of dogs, owners, veterinarians, researchers, and volunteers to carry out the most ambitious canine health study in the world. The Dog Aging Project team will follow tens of thousands of companion dogs for ten years or more in order to identify the biological, lifestyle, and environmental factors that maximize healthy longevity. We expect to gain insights that will increase our ability to prevent, diagnose, and treat age-related diseases, thereby helping our dogs, and by extension, ourselves, live longer, healthier lives."
