Can dogs and cats catch colds?
Sometimes my dog has a runny nose.
I know cats can catch terrible colds. I have never had a dog catch a cold though, but I think they can.
I'm not sure if dogs can catch colds, but I do know that they can have allergies that result in a great deal of sneezing. If I use carpet fresh when I vaccuum, I have to be careful not to sprinkle too close to my dog or she'll end up sneezing. She's also had a really bad cough.
I don't know anything about cats, though.
Yes, dogs can get various illnesses that resemble human "colds." They can also have allergies,although from my understanding dog allergies are usually characterized by sneezing and scratching. A runny nose should be evaluated by a veterinarian.
I don't think cats and dogs ever catch a cold because they produce vitamin c in their body, which helps the immune system. Your dog has a runny nose maybe because of the heat?
