Re: Can dogs catch human viruses?


Hello Fudgeley - I really don't know but here is a link I looked up, not sure if it is helpful, or not. http://www.asktonyanything.com/tonyd...dog_catch.html and another http://www.terrificpets.com/forum/32004.asp

I think it is just what it ate - any bones in his throat? I remember my cat, Sooty, when given fish would sometimes get bones stuck in her throat - I would fish them out (excuse the pun) her throat.

I do hope Fudge is lots better by now.

Big hugs from me and doggy kisses from Loki xxxx

Thanks BK, very informative. It seems they can`t catch colds etc and viruses are species specific. It was probably the fish/bin raid. I gave her plain cold pasta afterwards to try and cushion any bones and had a good look down and couldn`t see anything stuck. I`m hoping that by morning she will have perked up. She is wagging her tail a little more so that is a good sign. Maybe just stomach ache and a poorly tum.

Morning all. i was greeted this morning by a bouncing, licking wall of Fudge. Several tennis balls and footballs later I came to the conclusion that she must feel better.Now I need to train OH not to hang fish bits in a carrier on the kitchen cupboard door handle!
