In the face of COVID-19, we are seeing a viral spread of fake news urging to avoid contact with pets in order not to become infected with COVID-19.
Our partner, IDEXX, a global leader in veterinary diagnostics and veterinary practice software, has analyzed thousands of samples taken from dogs and cats and has detected no positive results in pets of SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus strain responsible for COVID-19.
The results align with the current expert understanding that pets cannot be infected with COVID-19 or transmit it.
Stay positive and continue to take care of your furry friends. We believe that moments we spend with them can bring plenty of positive emotions that can help us during these hard times.
