The Guinness Book of World Records has just certified a new world’s oldest dog, and his name is Bobi from a village in Portugal. At 30 years, 266 days old as of February 1st, this Rafeiro do Alentejo breed (a livestock guardian dog) isn’t just the world’s oldest living dog – he’s actually the oldest dog ever.
According to Bobi’s parents, they’re not quite sure how he reached this old age. They simply stated that he lives in a “calm, peaceful environment” and that he lives “far from cities”. In his old age, Bobi enjoys lying in bed after his meals and relaxing by the fire.
Although we don’t quite know how Bobi reached this old age, we can take a look at the facts as to how pets can live longer. One of the most important considerations is diet. At PURELUXE Pet Food, we hear from our pet parents all of the time about improved health outcomes in their pets from a silkier skin and coat to better digestion and fewer “bathroom” issues. All of our formulas at made from fresh meat first and contain a healthy dose of pre and probiotics along with ingredients like cranberries that help with urinary tract issues. Some of these can help combat the poor air quality and toxins found in indoor environments that are common in cities.
While it’s not possible to control every variable in the length of our dog or cat’s life, there are steps that we can take. Visit pureluxepetfood.com to learn more about all of our dog and cat formulas.
