Yes, dogs do get their own version of the flu called canine flu. It has similar symptoms to us humans and can be prevented by avoiding groom shops and kennels, keeping your dog away from large dog populated areas and avoiding stray dogs. Unfortunately though, unlike us humans the dogs can be healthy even when affected. The best thing to do is if you think your dog may have been affected by canine flu consult your vet. The condition is relatively new so therefore treatment has been limited to IV fluids and broad spectrum antibiotics.
Yes, dogs can get flues just like a human can. The virus that the dog has is another strain of the human flu virus. It causes almost the same type of symptoms but it can only cause the flu in dogs.
My 8yr old male boxer has been throwing up and crying and did not settle all night.now he has diarrhea and still throws up.He has only been drinking water and eating grass since his threw up his lunch yesterday.He is just now sleeping without crying,but he looks worn out.could this be doggy flu?
I have the flu.. My pomeranian got hold of some of the tissues I was using to blow my nose although I was trying to be diligent about keeping them thrown away and out of his reach. Now he is exhibiting some of the same symptoms I am. Can he catch it from me?
Yes because the flu is a virus and is not limited to humans, that's why they have had names like swine flu, where a stain of flu was found in pigs and humans contracted it. Also, geese, who are immune to the flu are the worst culprits at spreading it as when they migrate north to south, and vise versa, the contract new strains, forms, of the flu and spread it with their dropping. Poo That is one of the main ways it is spread
She sounds like shes in labour! If this isn't possible then it could be a stomach bug which will resolve itself in a couple of days. If she gets very unwell though, take her to a vet immediately.
Can dogs catch a virus or fever from a human?
Yes.But they don't get the same kind of flu as a person.
Yes but not from a human they get it on thier own
Hi a dog can't get a flu as human being, but he can vomit when his symptom is not good so you should take him to veterinary to check what's his symptom ?
Yes they can get it just like humans do too, that why its important to get the vaccines.
Two of my dogs just died and another is in its way, but there really is no cure put some dogs do make it.
