What You Need to Know About Your Pet and COVID-19

Lana Paws blog on what you need to know about your pet and coronavirus

With Novel Coronavirus or COVID-19 being dubbed a global pandemic by the WHO, there has been panic and misinformation all around. Pet parents have been wondering if their dogs and cats can be infected with (and transmit) COVID-19. 

According to the WHO, "there is no evidence that pet dogs and cats have infected humans with COVID-19." While a dog in Hong Kong did show a weak positive, the disease did not cause the dog to fall ill, nor is there any evidence that the dog spread the virus. 
COVID-19 spreads primarily through respiratory droplets. This could either be directly from an infected person coughing or sneezing or from touching surfaces which may have respiratory droplets.
