Is Hayflick's theory universal?

I am trying to find publications on Hayflick studies that has been done on
different animals such as dogs, horses and turtles in order to see if his
hypothesis is true for species other than man. If these studies has been
done and there is a linear relationship between the age limit of different
animals and limited cell division then his theory is universal. If not then
his ideas are given to much emphasis in aging research
