Pets and the Coronavirus:

It is important to note that there is currently no evidence that pets can become sick with CoVID-19.  Infectious disease experts, as well as the CDC, World Organization for Animal Health, and World Health Organization, indicate there is also no evidence to suggest that pet dogs or cats can be a source of infection with SARS-CoV2, including spreading COVI-19 to people.  More investigation is underway and as we learn more, we will update you.

The CDC and The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) also have comprehensive websites with up-to-date information about COVID-19 and your pet(s).  Additional information about the Coronaviruses and your pets’ health is available at the following online resources:
