Can your dog get the flu from you?
Scientists from Oregon State University (OSU) say the next time you have flu, you might want to distance yourself from your pet/s.
Their recent research explored the possibility of human-to-pet flu transmissions and found evidence that the infection of pets from humans – especially during the peak of flu season – is a cause for serious concern.
While there’s not a lot of scientific information available on human-to-pet transmission (also known as “reverse zoonosis”), scientists and veterinarians at OSU believe that it is necessary to increase public awareness of the real possibility of the often asked questions of "do dogs get flu" and "do cats get flu".
The study of human-to-pet transmission could potentially affect the approximately 80 to 100 million households in the U.S. that have pets.
We worry a lot about zoonoses (the transmission of diseases from animals to people), commented Christiane Loehr, an associate professor in the OSU College of Veterinary Medicine, in a prepared statement, as follows:
NB - If you have flu and your dog begins to show similar symptoms, do not attempt to treat it with your human remedies. Many drugs which are effective and harmless to humans, e.g. aspirin can be fatal to pets, and in particular to cats.
You must seek advice from your family veterinarian immediately, otherwise the condition could be fatal for your "best friend".
Can people catch dog flu from their dog?
Currently, there is no scientific evidence available to support that dogs can transmit dog flu and upper respiratory infections to humans.
Although people and dogs can and do catch influenza viruses, they are normally susceptible to different strains of the virus. Please refer to our dog vaccination chart for the types of influenza viruses common to dogs.

A special tip from Carole -
I have used Rescue Remedy (shown below) for the past 24 years (actually, lets be specific - I have used it for my darling doggie Poppie and her predecessors) and found it absolutely marvelous! If you need to calm your pet down at any time, give it a go, you won't regret it (Poppie usually uses it before her bath time). Each bottle lasts her for ages!
