We are all trying to adjust to this dynamic new reality. Here is what we know.
Different Corona viruses can cause different disease syndromes in different animals, none of which pose any danger to human health.
So far your pets are safe from catching this form of Corona virus. A case out of China in a dog showed the the dog was only contaminated with it's owner's virus. The virus did not replicate in the dog. This very old little dog did expire shortly after being released from quarantine probably due to the stress and confusion that the separation from his owner caused.
There are reports of the virus maybe causing clinical disease in a cat... We are watching this closely, but so far this case is unique.
We are fully open for business!
