Can dogs get a cold?


Recommended Posts

I had a sore throat and stuffed up head earlier this week. Now Jody is sneezing. He doesn't have a cough. Eating, pooping and playing are a normal. I have seen one clear "snot bubble" on his nostril. No thick or colorful discharge from nose or eyes. He is up to date on all vaccinations.

 

Can dogs get colds? What do you do for that?

Dogs can experience upper respiratory diseases. Two of the things dogs are generally vaccinated against--parainfluenza and adenovirus--can cause upper respiratory infections. Cold viruses are generally species specific, so it's unlikely that your dog caught a cold from you.
