How to understand that the dog is cold?

Autumn and winter are cold times. And not only for us, but also for Pets. To avoid complications, it is important to know the first signs of a cold in dogs and start treatment in a timely manner. We will talk about how to understand that the dog has a cold in our article.

Can a dog catch a cold?
Let’s start with the main thing: the diagnosis of “cold” for dogs does not exist. If your pet is diagnosed with this condition in the vet clinic, please specify what the dog is sick with, or change the vet clinic.

The common cold as we know it does not occur in dogs. Animals are not susceptible to human viruses, and Vice versa. Therefore, if you see Pets with such “standard” cold symptoms as a runny nose, sneezing, coughing and fever, do not rush to conclude that they have a cold. It is possible that we are talking about completely different diseases, and treatment will also require a completely different one.

However, the dog can still get cold. However, the causes and course of the disease in dogs and people are different.

How do I know if I’m cold?
If the dog is kept in the right conditions and eats well, if it has good genetics, a strong immune system and no health problems, then it is not afraid of colds. The body confidently resists them, and in the case of infection quickly copes with them. However, there are factors that reduce the immune system, and then the dog becomes vulnerable to a “cold”. This is, for example, stress, infection with parasites, allergies, or old age. Often the cause of the disease is hypothermia on the street or drafts at home. It is easy to get sick of a dog that was poorly wiped after bathing and that soon after fell under the air conditioner. In short, you can’t predict all situations. Therefore, dogs, like people, get sick.

The main danger is that the symptoms of colds in dogs develop very quickly. Without proper treatment, a viral infection is highly likely to develop into a bacterial infection, which is fraught with severe complications.

Therefore, if you notice the first signs of malaise in the dog, if you are worried about something in its behavior, do not be lazy to immediately contact a veterinary specialist. Better to be safe. In addition, an inspection in any case will not be superfluous.

What “bells” say about colds in dogs?

Attempts to scratch the dog’s ear, tilting the head sideways, shaking the head, discharge from the ear (possible signs of otitis media, which may be caused by hypothermia)

Difficulties when urinating: the dog is looking for a place to urinate for a long time, tries to go to the toilet, but it does not succeed. This also includes frequent urination in small portions, uncontrolled urination, pain when urinating, and blood in the urine. All this looks like signs of cystitis, one of the causes of which is hypothermia.

If you notice one or more symptoms from the list, contact your veterinarian. Do not self-medicate and do not expect that everything will go “by itself”: without a professional examination and analysis, you can not know what exactly the dog is sick and what treatment it needs. Delay or incorrect treatment threatens the health and life of the pet.

Can I get a cold from a dog?
You can’t get a cold from your pet, because different viruses affect humans and animals. Exceptions are rare cases when the disease is caused by common protozoa for humans and dogs. A detailed picture can only be announced by a veterinarian based on the analysis and examination in each case.

Take care of your Pets and be healthy!
