As with humans, when a pet is sick the best thing to do is to seek medical attention. Talk to your veterinarian about the best course of treatment.

Well there isnt any over the counter medication for dogs. So either give it a day or two and hope it goes away or visit your vet.

Dogs usually have a respiratory infection (not the same cold as us humans get), which most of the time doesn't need veterinary care. Do pay extra attention if you have a puppy or an older dog. Try to give them him extra nutrition. Also spend limited time out in the cold, keep the dog warm and dry.
