Recently, his video went viral on TikTok, where he explained how to correctly count dog years. According to him, one human year does not equal seven dog years. In this one-minute-long clip, Dr. Finn explained that one human year means your furry friend has aged 31 human years. Shocking, right? Well, he did not stop there.

“A 1-year-old dog equals a 31-year-old human. And a 2-year-old dog is 49,” the veterinarian explained and continued. “You don’t even want to know how old a seven-year-old dog is: 62. We found out that aging does slow down. An eight-year-old dog is 64.”

The educational video reached more than 4.7 million views and has almost 430,000 likes in just a couple of days. However, his other posts are equally fun and informative.
