Humans are not so different for their animals cohorts.
We get sick, they get sick…and sicky is very icky!
So what are some common diseases that people share with other animals???
The top diseases most mammals share are heart disease and breast cancer. As the number one killer in humans, heart death in animals can also include damages from fear and other forms of stress.
As for breast cancer, the only mammal species that do not suffer from the disease regularly are the cow and goat.
Why? Their super strong teats are constantly used for milk!
The remaining diseases include:
Obesity and diabetes
Osteosarcoma is a rare bone cancer that is the number one killer for Labrador retrievers. Overeating and overfeeding contributes to obesity and diabetes while overexposure causes skin cancer just like humans.
Erectile dysfunction and STDs are not necessarily signs of promiscuity. As there are no condoms in the wild, STDs are a common occurence.
And it looks like everyone can use some "happy pills!"
