It is very uncommon for any human disease/infection/flu to transmit to any animal. Not unheard of, but very rare. There are many things that humans can get from animals though.

Often, if a pet does become sick from the same thing a human has they will have the same types of symptoms. If you had a cold then your dog may end up with a cough or a runny nose. Symptoms are usually far less pronounced in animals than in humans.
