Having pets at home is one of the things that a man could consider as an “essential thing” when having their own houses. Pets are so-called stress-relievers and go-to cuddle givers whenever we want to feel loved and calm after a long day at school or at work. Just like us people, pets do also get bored whenever we have limited activities set for the day. Besides pets staying at home, sometimes they tend to go outside our houses or common grounds to look for friendship from other house pets and stroll around the community freely. But a lot had changed, even the free community that they used to stroll with freely is not safe anymore. CoronaVirus had infected and vigorously set every human's lives in danger. Hence, a big confusion had questioned the minds of every pet owner which had been alarming to them since the very start of the CoronaVirus pandemic. Do pets (especially dogs) can have CoronaVirus? Is it still safe to stay with them and be as clingy as we are to them like before? 

Good news: You can actually protect yourself as much as possible by wearing an FFP3 or N95 respiratory mask: Get your N95 respirator masks for the whole family today.

Cats are also pets, but the majority of the people concluded that dogs are way better to pet than cats for they are showier and can be trained easily with tricks, commands, and proper behaviors. In fact, we all know that dogs are considered as “man’s best friend” for they live and act like half-humans already. But in these pandemic times, is it still safe to pet dogs and let them stay outside for as long as they want? 

Unfortunately, dogs can possibly get infected with CoronaVirus after close contact with a certain person or object transmitted with it. Just like humans, they also have body systems that they use in order to move and function well as a being. But, based on the limited information given by the Center for Disease Control and Protection (CDC), the risk of the animals spreading viruses to people is considered below. Hence, it is still told that whenever we feel doubtful about our pets, we should start tracking down their behaviors, temperatures, and even the amount of food they eat daily (appetite). Besides that, we should also treat pets like how we treat ourselves. Not pertaining to wearing of mask or sanitizing them with alcohols but let us help them to practice proper grooming such as taking a bath at least once a week, changing their dog sheets, feeding them good meals that are nourished with good vitamins and protections, keeping them away from the outside world, cleaning their cages (if they have), and most of all, have them isolate with you whenever some of your family members show signs of potential illnesses to avoid virus development.

There is no adequate or sufficient amount of studies to conclude that viruses can be transmitted through the skin, fur, or any other pet skins. If you see any unusual actions from them, do not panic and apply chemical-based disinfectants such as alcohols, sanitizers, and bleaches to their skins. Putting covering materials such as masks is not recommended for animal use because covering their faces may cause them harm. The best way to deal with your pet’s unfamiliar behavior is to contact your family veterinarian to further examine them accordingly and give them the best treatment that they need regarding your concern for the health of your pets.
