Dogs will eat just about anything but they can also get a stomach virus, just like humans. A dog that has eaten something foreign will often suffer from stomach upset. Even if your dog eats the same food each day at home, he can somehow manage to sneak in something from the park.

It’s not uncommon for dogs to eat grass, plants, and bones.

  • Both my dogs have come down with pneumonia like symptoms and then I have also come down with the same symptoms as my dogs I wish they were house calls with this other outbreak I don’t want to take myself or the dogs out since we are all sick

  • well this didnt help me at all, my dogs been congested for 4 days, the vet told me nothing and gladly took my money. i cant find out the way this sounds. theres no vets anywhere that ever help me i might as well drive past and just throw my money at there door and not even go in

  • Animals? It seems due to reports there is no evidence of animals

    spreading the C-19. either to us or themselves.

    So If this is true maybe the answer lies in the sliver of the animals

    as the antidote.? Just a thought. Malc UK
