Human Coronavirus and your cat

Authorities have told us not to panic! It is highly unlikely that COVID-19, the new human coronavirus, will be transmitted through your cat. Although the human virus seems to have emerged from an animal source it now spreads from human to human in coughs and sneezes. Scientists have not detected any dogs or cats infected with COVID-19. To be on the safe side World Small Animal Veterinary Association One Health Committee Chair Michael Lappin, DVM, recommends that you: Keep your pet with you if you are self-quarantined Keep cats indoors If family or friends become hospitalized due to COVID-19 infection overseas or on return to Australia arrange for pets to be cared for outside the home If your cat has been around someone infected with COVID-19 and becomes ill please let us know when you book an appointment for your cat If you have been in China or around someone infected with COVID-19 please let us know when you book an appointment for your cat Information specific to Australia is found here
