Reader Question on Transmission of Respiratory Infections to Humans
I have two dogs - a 7 year St. Bernard mix and 7 month old Toy Chihuahua. The St. Bernard started with sneezing and cough. The vet diagnosed an upper respiratory infection.
The puppy came down with the same symptoms a few days later. Both dogs are on antibiotics. I was wondering if humans can contract this.
A few days ago my daughter came down with a cough.
