Coronavirus and Pets

  1.  Can dogs and cats get novel coronavirus (COVID-19)?

At this moment there has been not been sufficient scientific evidence to point to transmission from or to our pets.

2.  I saw on social media of pets having masks.  Will a mask for my pet help in regards to COVID-19?

No.  There’s no proven scientific evidence of transmission from or to our pets.  Pets don’t like masks and it’s unlikely to be very effective.
