Can your dog catch your cold?

Saturday, January 1, 2011

dog-left-aloneThe time of year is here and it seems that everyone is sneezing and coughing. If you come down with a cold or flu, is it possible for your dog to catch your cold?  Well,the answer is no, your dog cannot catch your cold. The reverse however is not true. If your dog is sick with a cold and has watery eyes or a runny nose and you pet him, you can catch his cold. It’s important that you wash your hands thoroughly each time you touch your dog. If his cold persists, don’t try to administer any pet medication on your own. Take him to the vet to determine whether it’s a respiratory infection.
