FAQs about Covid-19 in the veterinary industry.

Can pets get Coronavirus?

According to the CDC, there is no evidence to suggest that any animals, including pets, livestock, or wildlife, might be a source of COVID-19 infection at this time. However, because all animals can carry germs that can make people sick, it’s always a good idea to practice healthy habits around pets and other animals.

What should you do with your pets if you have the Coronavirus?

According to the CDC, you should restrict contact with pets and other animals, just like you would around other people.  When possible, have another member of your household care for your animals while you are sick with COVID-19. If you must care for your pet or be around animals while you are sick, wash your hands before and after you interact with them.

Are there risks from imported animals and animal products?

According to the CDC, there is no evidence to suggest that imported animals or animal products pose a risk for spreading COVID-19 in the United States.
