Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

I am sorry to hear you are concerned about Shane. Most human diseases are not contagious to dogs, so he will probably be OK.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

Watch for a normal appetite, or any signs of respiratory disease such as coughing or sneezing or watery eyes.
