I know this is a silly question but I was wondering if anyone knew if dogs could catch colds? My 1 1/2 year old mini dachshund was find yesterday but she seems to be sneezing a lot today and blowing out her nose like she has a cold. She is running around and playing like normal but I just thought I would ask.
Yes, they get colds. There has also been a weather change in a lot of areas causing a flare up of allergens. Everything that can sneeze has been sneezing in my house this week. If there are no symptoms of sickness it is probably just allergies or dust up the dog's nose.
I was thinking the same thing; most likely allergies. If your dog does not have a horrible gagging cough that makes them vomit at times it is not Kennel Cough or what is know as Bordetella (which you can vaccinate for)
You might try a benadryl and see if that helps. I would use a half for your dog
