I’m at work today only thanks to a couple of big swills of Robotussin DM. Last night as i huddled on the couch debating whether I’d come in today my dog was curled up next to me. It got me to thinking … I don’t think I’ve really ever seen the dog sick.
Sure she’s thrown up a few times over the years from drinking too much ocean water at the beach or eating a dead bird - but I don’t think she’s ever been sick sick. My last dog of thirteen years was the same way.
Apparently, there are dog flus and and dog colds - but I’ve never seen them. How is it possible that my old dog that lived a full life and my middle aged dog now have never gotten sick? (I certainly don’t know any humans I could say this about)
I walk my dog every day - it comes into contact with other dogs (especially in the summer as I live in a beach town) - I do have her on the normal flea/tick stuff - and I just feed her grocery store bought food (not the cheapest stuff - but not the expensive stuff either). If it matters, both the old dog and the current one are border collies - both rescues at about two years old.
Anyone know why dogs don’t seem to get sick that often?
