Human flu cannot be passed to dogs!

While we humans sniffle and cough with the seasonal flu, our canine companions suffer from a different culprit altogether! The canine influenza virus (CIV), specific to dogs, is the reason behind doggy flu outbreaks. So, no need to worry about sharing tissues with your furry friend – you can’t pass your human flu to them (and luckily, they can’t give you theirs either).
