LATEST ON COVID-19: As of right now, April 24th, there are only two instances of pets being infected with the Coronavirus. The first positive test for an animal in the US was for a tiger at the New York City Zoo. Since then, two pet cats in New York have also tested positive. The CDC hasn’t received any reports of dogs in the United States testing positive for carrying or transmitting the Coronavirus. According to Nature.com and the CDC, the risk for pets becoming infected or spreading the Coronavirus is very low. That said, it is still a good idea to practice extra caution when taking care of animals, whether for a client or in your own home.
Here are the recommendations for pet care from the CDC:
Until we learn more about how this virus affects animals, treat pets as you would other human family members to protect them from a possible infection.
Do not let pets interact with people or other animals outside the household.
Keep cats indoors when possible to prevent them from interacting with other animals or people.
Walk dogs on a leash, maintaining at least 6 feet (2 meters) from other people and animals.
Avoid dog parks or public places where a large number of people and dogs gather.
If you, a family member, or a client has tested positive for COVID-19, or if showing symptoms, it’s best to limit contact with pets, and have some else help out. We will keep this post updated as more information becomes available.
