    When was the last time you were sick with the cold or flu?

    How come our pets don't get it from us - or do they just don't show it?

    Around a month ago I had a cold for what seemed like forever. For some reason Summer colds seem so much worse.

    I've never had the flu. A cold? I believe one existed two months ago. It was either a cold or strep throat again.

      You are lucky you never has the flu - takes longer than a cold

    I had an absolutely brutal stomach virus/flu about a year and a half ago. Everyone in my house (me, wife, both kids) had it all at the same time. if I wasn't barfing or holed up in the bathroom, I was in bed praying for Death.

      Yeah, I hate it when all orifices are leaking, spewing or hurling - all at the same time.

    I has been many years since I had either of these. I wash my hands very frequently and avoid others that cannot stay out of public places when they are visibly ill. In addition I avoid people that don't practice proper hygiene or cleanliness.

    It actually was several years ago. I'm going through a point in my life where I don't get sick a lot. I guess I'm just lucky that way.

    It was more than a century ago when I had flu or cold.

    It was the discovery of what I deem as necessary of getting the right supplement to avoid getting sick with flu or cold.

    Our bodies need the right amount of vitamin C to build up resistance so if you have sufficient vitamin C then you will be able to overcome it.

    It has been a couple years since a cold and maybe 4 or 5 since any kind of flu.  I hate being sick so am glad I haven caught anything....

    I believe the viruses that cause colds do not affect dogs, they have their own brand of flu, corona virus, Parvo etc.

    Two weeks ago I had a minor, minor cold with some laryngitis.  I don't know where it came from except I was not eating enough vegetables.   

    Dogs can eat different bacteria than humans.   On the other hand some of our food is very bad for them.   Some viruses can pass from animals to humans like cat viruses, I think.

    I haven't had a flu for years but do get colds a few times a year. As for our dog, she just lies with me when I'm resting. She's great company and just tilts her head when I have a sneezing attack smile
