Do Dogs Get Colds? Everything You Need to Know

There are millions of common-cold cases in human beings reported each year. What about our furry friends? Can they get colds?

Key takeaways:

·         The viruses that cause common-cold in human beings are species-specific and not capable of causing colds or illness in dogs.

·         However, published studies indicate that humans and dogs share some infections with some types of influenza viruses.

·         Viruses such as canine respiratory coronavirus, canine adenovirus type 2, and canine parainfluenza virus have clinical signs that are no different from cold symptoms in humans.

If a dog is still eating and drinking and wants to be relatively active, it is reasonable to try symptomatic care and home remedies. Encourage your dog to rest, drink, and eat so his immune system has the resources to fight off the infection.
