phpAnimals -


This package provides information about different pet animals.

It provides a base class that can return different information about a type of animal, like, for instance, the equivalent number of years of an animal compared to a human's age.

The package also provides specific sub-classes for different types of animals.

Currently, it provides sub-classes for cats and dogs.

Different types of animals have different average lifetime duration.

If you want to evaluate the equivalent age of a pet animal when compared to a human, you need to calculate the proportional age of the pet animal, considering the average lifetime of an animal compared to a human average lifetime duration.

This package provides classes that can return details for different types of animals, like the current age of a pet animal as if it were a human, so you can have an idea of how old an animal is.

Dog and Cat ages in Human age.....


2019 Epigenetic Clock Study

A 2019 study by researchers at the University of California San Diego put forth a new method for calculating dog age, based on changes made to human and dog DNA over time.

In both species, methyl groups are added to DNA molecules throughout aging, altering DNA activity without altering the DNA itself. As a result, DNA methylation has been used by scientists to study aging in humans through an «epigenetic clock».

The research team performed targeted DNA sequencing in 104 Labrador Retrievers spanning a 16 year age range, in an attempt to compare with the dogs epigenetic clocks to those of humans.

The results allowed them to derive a formula for adjusting dogs ages to "human years", by multiplying the natural logarithm of the dog's age by 16 and adding 31.
