For a lot of us, our only company available right now is our pets.

Although there’s still a substantial amount of information we have yet to know about COVID-19, here’s what we know about how to keep our furry friends safe.

1. We know that COVID-19 was originally spread from some kind of animal, but there is no evidence that there is significant risk of spreading COVID to our pets.
2. If you are sick, you should immediately let someone healthy babysit Fido. If there is no one available to take care of your pets for you, take extreme caution. Don’t kiss or snuggle your pets while you are sick. Although it’s unlikely that they’ll catch your illness, you should still take precautions to keep your furry friend safe.
3. For the time being, you should avoid dog parks or any places where there are lots of other humans and fur children.

To lots of us, our pets are our children. We must keep them safe and healthy during this time!
