COVID-19 / Wuhan Virus in Animals?

by John Stoesser on Mar 25, 2020

Well, Fido may be our best friend, but we apparently have a new way for potentially doing him harm.  A second dog from the same owner in Hong Kong has been confirmed as positive for the COVID-19 virus, after another elderly dog, also in Hong Kong, dies subsequent to being diagnosed as positive.

Take-away:  If there are mammalian pets maintained by people testing positive for the virus, arrangements should made for the animals' quarantine as well.
