WSAVA advice and guidance on coronavirus for pet owners.


The World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA) has given advice that currently there is no evidence that pets or other domestic animals can be infected with Covid-19. It is also highly unlikely that dog, cats and other companion animals could transmit the virus to people or other animals. However, as the WSAVA describe this as 'a rapidly evolving situation' the following sensible precautions have been recommended:  if an owner/s are self quarantined it is advised that they keep their pet with them, including keeping cats indoors; if an owner is hospitalised then it is recommended that the pet/s is/are kept at home and cared for by a friend or relative; if an owner has any concerns to contact their doctor or veterinarian.
