Your Pet and COVID-19: CDC's New Guidelines

CHAH Updates

The CDC is now recommending that we practice social distancing with our pets as well.  A small few of animals have tested positive for the virus, all of which have been in contact with an infected human. 

  • Do not let your pets interact with people or other pets outside of the household
  • Keep cats inside when possible
  • Walk dogs on leashes
  • Avoid dog parks or public places

We now have the capability to test pets. If you believe your pet has been exposed and it is exhibiting symptoms of respiratory illness, please give us a call and schedule a consultation.

Follow the link below for more information regarding COVID-19 and your animals.
