flu viruses.
Zoonoses effecting dogs that can be directly or indirectly transmitted to humans & that involve the GI tract of one or the other include: Salmonellosis (bacteria), Giardiasis (intestinal protozoa), Strongyloidiasis (parasite) & Campylobacter enteritis (bacteria). Don't know of any intestinal flu that is transmitted between dog & human.
