Can A Dog Get Chicken Pox

Basic question here. My wife at age 31 has come down with the chicken pox and she was away when she contracted the virus, I just would like to know she had come down with it about 5-6 days ago and she just came back from her hometown. Is there any way that my dog could contract the virus from my wife?

Any information that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

Kind Regards,
Michael Lieberman

Hello Mike,

Human chicken pox is species specific and is not transmissible to dogs or cats.
