Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

How about animal age?
How old is my dog/cat/horse/etc in animal years.
We all know the common 1 human year = 7 dog years, but most "dog people" also know that the scale actually varies depending on the age of the dog. Something like the first year is more like 9 or 10 human years, while the 15th year may be more like 3 or four human years.
Being able to input the animal's current "human" age and then convert to the equivalent age would be cool.
I will look for it under the TIME category, unless you decide to create its own category.
Fantastic site - thanks!

Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm afraid these conversions are not very agreed upon. There could be many opinions on how many dog years will make one human year. If you are aware of any generally approved source for this conversion, please let us know.

Thanks!
