The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated while there has been one instance of a dog or other pet being infected in Hong Kong, there is no evidence that a dog, cat, or any pet can transmit COVID-19, which is mainly spread through droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or speaks.
If you are concerned or notice a change in your dog’s health, speak to a veterinarian.

In the meantime, please enjoy this extra time with your family, friends, loved ones, animals and yourself. And stay healthy! It’s vitally important as a community that we collaborate and stay connected in meaningful ways (while keeping our social distance). T
