Cats, dogs and COVID-19

As we all continue to adapt to life during COVID-19, you may be wondering about the latest information on the pandemic and pets.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have reported about 1 million human cases of COVID-19 in the U.S. as of late April. Only one dog, two pet cats and several tigers and lions in a U.S. zoo have become mildly ill as a result of infection with the virus that causes COVID-19, according to the American Veterinary Medical Association.

Always be mindful of good hygiene practices when caring for your pets — but especially during a pandemic.

Keep your pets (and yourself!) healthy, so everyone can enjoy the benefits that pets bring to our lives.

We also urge you to stay informed about the rapidly changing pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers regularly updated and reliable information. Be sure to also follow the guidance of your state and local health officials.
