Everything you need to know about dogs and COVID-19.
Can my dog get coronavirus?
In the midst of remaining calm yet prepared, many pet parents are concerned if their furry friend’s can become ill, or effect the health of their family. The good news is, dogs are not believed to be threatened by this specific coronavirus, COVID-19. However, dogs can carry bacteria and germs from the outside world into the home. It is important that you take precautionary measures with your animals, just as you do with yourself and your family.
According to the World Health Association, there is no reason to panic about pets as possible victims or carriers of the coronavirus. So no need to quarantine or mask your pups. As always contact your veterinarian if your dog shows signs of illness.
How can I keep my dog clean from bacteria and germs?
To reduce the spread of germs into your home and to your family the American Kennel Club recommends cleaning animals paws with a paw cleaner or paw wipe.
Take cautionary steps to sanitize your pups paws after they have been outside and bathe them regularly to remove any potentially harmful germs from the outside.
