Coronavirus And Pets: Is Your Pet Safe?
Many pet-owners have expressed concern over whether or not coronavirus (or COVID-19) can impact or be carried by dogs, cats and other pets or wild animals.
The CDC responded, “While this virus seems to have emerged from an animal source, it is now spreading from person-to-person in China. There is no reason to think that any animals including pets in the United States might be a source of infection with this new coronavirus.”
The CDC said they have not gotten any reports of pets becoming sick with COVID-19, so there’s no evidence that animals could be infected or spread the virus. Whew!!
