What Pet Owners Should Know about Coronavirus COVID-19
We want you to be knowledgeable, prepared and consider your pets in this preparation.
Spread of Coronavirus from pets - There is currently no evidence that companion animals, including pets, can spread COVID-19
Pets cannot be infected with Coronavirus - There is currently no evidence that companion animals, including pets, can be infected with COVID-19. This is a rapidly evolving situation and information will be updated as soon as it becomes available.
Coronavirus Vaccine for Dogs - The coronavirus vaccine for dogs is distinctly different from COVID-19.
Pet Care - As always when around or handling animals, we recommend washing hands or sanitizing to prevent any disease from spreading, animals need not wear a face mask to be protected from COVID-19. Seek veterinary care if you are concerned or notice a change in your pet's health.
Benefits of Pets at home - Pets are good to have around in this stressful period when many people are stuck in their homes. Pets can help lower blood pressure and ease the feeling of stress.
Pet Preparedness Plan - Pet owners should always include pets in their family's emergency preparedness planning and ensure enough food and product to care for pets' needs.
