@IIlham a vital question to some of us that love dogs.
Typically the lifespan of a dog is between 10-13years. But this is basically an average and this is dependent on the type or breed of dog. Do you have a dog? I had a dog that lived up to 8years. But know some people with dogs as old as 14years.
Have you heard that actually one year in dog years is equivalent to about 7 human years. So if a dog lives up to 10years, they would be about 70years old (in human years)…..

@IIham thank you very much for your response and I very sorry to hear about your dog. Have you taken it to a veterinary?
The 1dog year = 7 human years is a myth and I doubt it has been scientifically proven. But dogs, depending on the breed usually do not get as old as 10years. What kind of breed do you have? I like German shepherds or alsatian that usually live up to 11years. I have a friend who has a rotweiller and they live for about 9years. I also have a friend who loves Jack Russells and these can live between 12-16years. So it really depends on the type of dog.
Please let me know what type of dog you have. Also make sure that you make sure it sees a vet so it can get better.
