Well, this isn’t the news we wanted to hear.
A pug in North Carolina named Winston, was experiencing mild symptoms – Like he didn’t want to eat his breakfast, and if you know any dog…. you know they love to eat.
Winston, was part of a Duke University study in which a whole family, the McCleans, were tested for the virus.
The mother, father, son, and pug tested positive, while the daughter, another dog and a cat tested negative.
All of this info I got from NBCnews.com
A dog in Hong Kong with coronavirus died in March, but the cause of death for the 17-year-old was unclear as the owner refused an autopsy.
We all heard that the CDC said there is no evidence that animals can spread the virus that causes COVID-19, but they do recommend you treat them as you would other human family members.
One thing they recommend: Do not let pets interact with people or animals outside the household, If a person inside the household becomes sick, isolate that person from everyone else, including pets.
So… I guess they can get it. Great.
