    Can dogs get mono? No. Mononucleosis in humans actually comes from the Epstein-Barr virus (a type of herpesvirus). This virus can indeed spread to dogs, and most often comes from exposure to a person with mono. That being said, the virus does not affect mononuclear cells in dogs. So technically, dogs can not get mono.

    No. Luckily, mono can’t be transmitted from humans to dogs. This virus is only transmittable among humans and never from human to dog (or any other animal).
