Most dogs live on average from ten to 14 years. Of course, some may be long-lived, others may be predisposed to certain diseases. But is there a universal way to prolong the life of your pet? Scientists from the University of Nottingham Trent know a few secrets!
Paleontologists have found the fossilized brain of a 310 million-year-old horseshoe crab in the valley of Mason Creek, Illinois. During the excavation of an ancient human site in Dmanisi, Georgia, fragments of a dog's jaw, which are 1.8 million years old, were found. Anthropologists have come to the conclusion that the rock paintings in a cave near Malaga were made by Neanderthals 45 thousand years ago. During the underwater excavations of Heraklion near modern Alexandria, Egypt, fruit baskets were found that are more than 2000 years old.
It turns out that not only people can perceive quantitative information. Previously, it was found that tiny guppy fish, bees, as well as hyenas and dogs react to changes in the number of certain objects. Their skills are approximately at the level of a one-year-old child who will understand that there are fewer candies if mom decides to hide one. But the child will eventually learn to count, and the guppy fish will not. We find out why.
The secret lies not in fat or fur: a more subtle and complex mechanism was discovered in the animal — at the cellular level.
Having made a breakthrough that can significantly ease the burden of patients recovering from cardiac surgery, scientists have developed a new type of temporary pacemaker that never needs to be removed.
Dog owners know that sometimes a dog can run or whine in a dream. What does a furry friend dream about?
Scientists have named the reasons why collective (herd) immunity is probably impossible. Cases of resistance to various forms of SARS-CoV-2 in recovered patients will help the development of universal vaccines. COVID-19 leads to hearing disorders, tinnitus and dizziness. Dogs and cats suffer from COVID-19
Pet owners are often tempted to treat a furry friend with a treat from their plate. But before you do this, make sure that you are not going to treat the animal with a product that can kill it!
