Can a state vet know how old your dog is by the teeth and dog fea
My dog died over two weeks ago and I am having a necrospy done by a state vet in Virginia. This state vet has been doing necropies for over 25 years. Their has always been a question about my dog's age because I got him at the humane society and they said he was 9 years old back in 2016 when I got him. The state vet said my dog was 16 years old when he died on December 28, 2018. He made this determination of 16 years old when he said that he looked at my dog's teeth and bone features. My question is can he determine exactly how old my dog's age was by looking at his teeth and bone features? He did not say it was a estimate or a guess but said my dog was 16 years old. Is this possible?
