I share in this video things to consider with COVID 19.
I worked in vector disease, insect disease, for 12 years with my Microbiology degree. When I graduated in 1995 I asked why these bugs had not taken more of us. There were so many bad infectious agents out in the world. A good thing I did not become a germ phobe. My passion was to ask questions as to why certain things happened. I want to share my knowledge here to help ease your mind that we are safe.
A few resources on the recent research with Coronavirus in dogs.
There were 2 dogs in Hong Kong that tested positive for Coronavirus with no symptoms.
American Kennel Club posted an article with updated information on dogs and corona virus. A pug in NC tested positive as the first canine case.
Idexx has done research since March and now has a test for pets from your Veterinarian. They say dogs may have virus on their coat if the owner is sick and I talked about this in my video. Now they are finding cats may transmit the virus to humans.
I will continue to review research and update as new information comes available.
Leave questions in the comments and I am happy to answer them.
