Ok

When My dog first arrived to Uk he was sneezing a bit and over a period of the week he was sneezing and sniffling more and more so i gave him colloidal silver in his water for a week and he is fine.

But now my cat has the exact same thing. She has started sneezing with a runny nose. So now she is on the silver too. Just starting to improve.

Now i am starting to sneeze with a stuffy nose and sore throat. Day 2. Im on silver now and still waiting for improvement.

I didnt think colds were passed around between cat, dogs and humans? It is 100% the same illness.

I know of no upper respiratory that is spread between these 3 species.

But allergies can be attributed. Also, stress of moving, adding a new dog can cause that stress and lower immune systems. So, bringing in a new dog, that dog traveling, freaking out the cat, and you being stressed about the sneezing s d having a new dog and the animals all sneezing could just be overwhelming everyone's immune system.

Everyone tells me that my dog and cats can't pass those symptoms, but my dog came home from boarding a few years ago sneezing and sniffling. 5 days later neither cat could breath through their nose, they looked pitiful sneezing and breathing with their mouths open. I am convinced it came from the dog. None of the animals had ever had before or had since any allergies.

Wow, Nigel -- that's a fascinating article. If one didn't have mad respect for the flu virus' mutation potential already, this ought to do it.

Cold due to to stress causing weakened immune system makes sense. I know a person can get a cold from a ferret. This winter a cold was going back and forth through the house for a while- it caused max to have a bit of a sneeze it wasn't drastic but he was sneezing a bit.- who knows. Very interesting article.
