5 tips for caring for your pet if you have coronavirus
Pets can get infected with coronavirus, too. Infected dogs and cats usually have no to mild symptoms. Also, the chance of a pet infecting another animal or human is very small. Are you, the owner, infected with coronavirus?
Then please follow these tips:
- Avoid contact with your pet (no cuddling or licking)
- Do you have to isolate? Then keep your dog or cat inside as much as possible;
- If possible, ask a housemate who isn’t sick to take care of the pet;
- Maintain good hygiene;
- Do you have a dog? Take it for short walks on a leash. Or, better still: ask someone close to you to walk the dog.
