It has now been shown that that dogs, cats and other mammals can contract the coronavirus from humans. This may mean limiting the number of guests and not allowing them to pet or even interact with your pets. Symptoms for pets include fever, coughing, difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, lethargy, sneezing, discharge from the nose or eyes, vomiting, or diarrhea. A solution for this issue is to relocate pets to “safe rooms” that are already familiar to them, like a bedroom, containing the pet’s comforting possessions and necessities like a cushy bed, safe chew toys or goody-stuffed “Kongs” for dogs, food and water bowls. Cats, too, will need food and water bowls, safe toys, scratching post and a litter box several feet away from the food bowl. Cats and dogs will need separate “safe rooms,” and your guests should not permitted to visit your pets.
