I looked on this web site: www.cdc.gov/healthypets/animals/dogs.htm, and didn't see anything about dogs getting strep in the first place, so the answer would be no. Dogs can get something commonly called kennel cough, which has cold symptoms, but it's not strep.
For many years our dog was the carrier. It was constantly in our home for a long time. The only reason we discovered this was because my dad worked in the medical field. Insist your vet do a throat culture on your dog, and when it comes out positive they will put them on antibiotics.
Yes..I worked in a pediatric office for many years. We had one family with3 children who kept coming in for recurring strep. The pediatrician asked if they had any animals. They brought the dog to a vet explaining the pediatricians concerns. They took a throat culture from the dog and sure enough, it was positive for strep.
Believe it or not, they actually can. It is a disease that both dogs & humans share, so dogs can spread strep throat to humans. If your dog has strep throat, I would bring him/her to the veterinarian as soon as possible. Strep throat is very painful, and I wouldn't want you to get it, too.
Dogs are mammals, just like us and even though they may not show symptoms the same way we do, they can carry the some of the same germs that we do. I took my dog to our vet recently and was told "your dog has a cold". I had had a cold the week before, and she became sluggish, and irritable, and had the sniffles. I had no idea she could catch it from me.
Yes they can, I'm a vet assistant & we see it all the time & there are other things that your dog could give you also such as Leptospirosis (Its very important that you keep your pets up to date on vaccinations), Sarcoptic Mange, Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye), Common Cold, etc.
